Norwegian artist Arne Bendik Sjur's work is about people and relationships. Sjur creates his evolving series by working on a single plate, printing an edition, then reworking the existing plate through multiple states. This continues until the series is complete. By obscuring and adding elements, the artist is able to portray the passage of time, transformations, and metamorphoses - suggesting the transient nature of reality. The small scale of each work and the meticulous rendering draws in the viewer and captures the imagination. Also included in the exhibition will be Sjur's most recent insect images and subjects revisiting his Chinese experiences in a series of sampans. Mr. Sjur's work has been exhibited in numerous museums in Northern Europe and Scandinavia.
