Kristian Krokfors - Forever Young

Kuntsi Museum of Modern Art, Vaasa

  • 1.10.2022–29.1.2023

The very first Young Artist of the Year

 

Kristian Krokfors (b. 1952) was the first artist to receive the award in 1984, and the exhibition connected with the it opened in Tampere Art Museum in early 1985. In this Forever Young exhibition, there are works from the 1985 exhibition, but the emphasis is on paintings and graphic works produced by the artist in recent years.

Krokfors is one of those artists who polish their work into an ever more perfect form by concentrating on a specific range of subjects. He continues precisely and systematically to make graphic works, drawings and paintings of buildings, trees, cones, balloons and other objects that have become familiar during his early career. However, over the years, new subjects have appeared although the basic elements of his subject matter have remained. Krokforss works are at the same time both familiar and strange, real and unreal. Their subjects are representational but abstracted. The object of the depiction is concrete, but it conveys infinity. The works induce us to consider the nature of existence. It is a precisely a question of perceiving the world and its truths, as the art historian Tomi Moisio writes in the exhibition catalogue.

The exhibition is produced by Tampere Art Museum.
