Impression - The Impacts of Mankind and Art
Artist presentation by Bolatta Silis-Høegh (GRL/LAT/DNK)
Within Silis-Høegh’s practice the culture of Greenland is constantly present, whether her work portrays a political position or an inner emotional landscape. Silis-Høegh’s work is reactive and depicts narratives without a filter. The colour ranges of her work have changed over the years from bright, bold colours to dark organic shades that seem to express a perspective or story even more powerfully and directly. Her large-format works often touch upon nature’s vulnerability; posing questions about mankind’s exploitation of natural resources. Will nature ultimately take its revenge?
