Welcome to the exhibition opening on Thursday 8 February at 6 pm.
Mette Stausland and Robert Wood are two well-established artists who will be exhibiting together in February in the Designers' Association's gallery. The focal point of Stausland's and Wood's art is drawing in an expanded perspective, with architectural models and energetic pencil drawings as the basis of the work.
Stausland and Wood are both working on an extended drawing concept. Although they share common interests and approach processes in similar ways, they occupy very different artistic positions. Stausland's use of drawing is characterized by an energetic, intuitive and spontaneous way of approaching form, pattern, format and expression.
Wood's works, on the other hand, are three-dimensional. In his work, he proposes and designs structures and spaces that visualize the experience of remembrance and reconstruction, by taking over principles from architectural models.
Mette Stausland (b. 1956 in Kristiansand) has her education from Vestlandets Kunstakademi, Kunstakademiet in Stockholm and Jan Van Eyck Academie in Maastricht. She is affiliated with the Rosenberg Gallery, Zurich. The artist has had several decorating assignments in Norway, and she is represented in many private and public collections at home and abroad. Stausland lives and works in Nordjylland in Denmark.
Robert Wood (b. 1957 in Toronto, Canada) graduated from the Glasgow School of Art. He has also an academic career, and has been a Senior Lecturer in Fine Art at Falmouth University in Cornwall UK. Since 2012, he has done several projects in collaboration with Mette Stausland, and has had several exhibitions in Germany, Switzerland and Denmark. Wood lives and works in Nordjylland in Denmark.
