Using just a carrot, Jesper Dyrehauge has laboriously filled large raw canvases with dots, printed one by one in neat rows. The results of these repetitive actions can be seen in a series of new works in the exhibition Medium Large at Overgaden.
Traditionally, a painter uses a paint brush. But not Jesper Dyrehauge. Dyrehauge uses a cut carrot as a tool when he creates his pictures. In calm movements, he gradually advances the rows of carrot-printed dots. The finished pictures reflect the repetitive working process, becoming infinite variations of rhythm, surface and depth, in a minimalist expression.
Jesper Dyrehauge’s systematic working process is repeated in the exhibition space. At Overgaden, Dyrehauge has designed plaster walls in the full height of the room, creating an asymmetrical floating space without right angles that emphasises the meditative and calm mood established by the paintings.
