Since graduating from Emily Carr in 2001, abstract painter Holger Kalberg has taken numerous approaches to modernist notions of representation, including the depiction of space on a flat canvas and investigating the point at which designed shapes become illusions of form. In the current series, he explores the use of grounding to give his compositions weight and to provide an increased sense of three-dimensionality.

The paintings and sculptures in this exhibit evoke what appears to be an “environment of separate objects.” They are intended to set up a dialogue that questions notions of originality, and to look at the place and process of studio production. Both the painted objects and the sculptures play with negative and positive space in the forms themselves, and address the relationship between the work and the outside world. In an added layer of conceptual complexity, the current series combines new and transformed versions of earlier work by the artist.

Holger Kalberg won a BC Arts Council Production Grant in 2004 and has three times been short-listed for a Royal Bank Canadian Painting Award. In 2007, he earned a Master’s degree in Fine Arts from Chelsea School of Art. He is represented by Monte Clark Gallery in Vancouver and Toronto, and has had solo exhibitions at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre and Galerie Hellebrand in Duisburg, Germany.
