The history of monochrome painting goes back more than a century. Since Kazimir Malevich revolutionized the art world in 1915 with his Black Square, which was based on a single-color surface, this artistic form of expression has taken many different paths without ever losing its ability to fascinate. The distinctive works of Norwegian painter Thomas Pihl join this tradition, continuing and enlarging upon it. If they tell a story at all, it is about the process of how they were made and the physical and mental spaces they are exposed to. To create his pieces, Pihl applies many layers of paint to the canvas, making it possible to visualize the traces of his work process. The resulting visual world - which shows us the nature of perception through its play of light and color - is now summarized for the first time in this comprehensive publication.
THOMAS PIHL (*1964) divides his time between New York and Bergen. Over the course of his more than thirty years of artistic activity, he has worked with monochrome painting, drawing, and sculpture. Around 2000, he began working particularly on large-format studies of the interplay of natural light and color.
