Morten Skrøder Lund

Lyst

Morten Skrøder Lund is highly aware of his limited possibility to totally dominate the outcome of his work and therefore actively switches between involvement and dissociation in relation to his paintings.

His practice hovers between directed actions and chance, starting by setting out a direction for each canvas, while allowing for factors such as chemistry and gravity to change the motif throughout the work. It is a conversation swinging back and forth between the artist and random dynamics that stops only when all layers of paint have fully dried. It is a restricted approach that hosts many additive elements as the image separates itself from its maker.

The artist is not particularly interested in narration, neither in relation to the motifs he presents nor in highlighting the process of production of his paintings. Rather than offering a set of reflections relating to its own formation, Skrøder Lund is more interested in puncturing any conclusive rendering of his work. In this line of thought each painting depicts its own logic in a manner of diversity rather than coherency, though always with the artist’s imprint unquestionably present.

The publication featuring the artist’s recent work evolves from a large painting presented in pieces throughout the publication at 50% of it’s original size. The book is published on the occasion of the exhibition Lyst by Morten Skrøder Lund at Christian Andersen, Copenhagen, October 2 – December 19, 2015.
