In Oslo on Friday November 22nd from 18:00 -21:00 Blank Space opens its newest exhibition, Synesthesia – a solo exhibition of Sergio Haisch. In this sales exhibition, you will find brand new oil paintings from the Oslo based artist filled with his signature vibrant style.
The artist will be present to talk about his process and inspiration.
Sergio Haisch is a designer and self-taught artist, born in La Paz, Bolivia currently living and working in Oslo.
Sergio’s figurative oil painting is inspired by photography film negatives, inverted into raw unnatural
shades of colour, and digital photo manipulation of colour hues and values. The use of these colors – the at times opposite and alarming and at times neutral and muted, bring a strange sense of calm amidst perceived chaos. The limited, but vibrant, colour palette is used as an exploration of the viewer’s perception of light, shadow, and space.
The subjects are placed in contexts that range from the urban to the ethereal; in worlds that exist in this universe but also scream an unnatural presence amidst abstract shapes and lines. These figures do not seem alarmed by their surroundings, but appear at home in these otherworldly surroundings.
The simplicity of the motives and composition come directly from Haisch’s design and advertising background; and the traditional materials, oil on both board and canvas, serve to give rich texture and vibrance to the imagery which are best experienced in person.
