About the work:
Thomas Pihl's astonishing intense monochrome paintings are the result of a painstakingly proces in which layer upon layer of paint is poured on the canvas. Mixing, blending till a dominant color appears. The different layers shimmer in a distance, shadows or memories of colors that were there before and now collectively form a new color. It shows when you look at the sides of the paintings where you still see drippings and jets of color that can be traced back to the final painting. The color of the painting draws you in, it lures you to look again and again. In Pihl’s work the painting itself is the center of attraction, a window to a world that is undefined but aesthetically pleasing and refers to hidden meanings, messages from beyond the physical reality of the painting in the museum space. The painting is an object but in itself materalises meaning and contemplation.
