Kristoffer G Dickinson – Global Warming
October 2 - October 13
British-Norwegian artist Kristoffer G Dickinson was born in 1989 Newcastle, England. Aged 10 he moved with his family to Austre Åmøy, an island nestled at the entrance of the fjords just of the coastal line to the North Sea. Steeped in Norwegian history also known as “The island the gods loved” Dickinson’s early work can show inspiration deriving from Viking burial grounds, Runes and family roots that infuse the Island with its spirit.
Dickinson currently resides and works in Stavanger, Norway. Working in a medium that favours his statement “at one with the consistency of the flow” – Acrylic, but also uses watercolor, chalk, lead, ink or what is needed for a particular creation.
Key themes in Dickinson’s art are derived from life experience,
Where negative and positive can be translated into an expression of lines, shadow and light. How energy can be transferred into guidance within a creation to become a positive outcome and emotions implemented would give it life and help bend the perspective of how we view and where it leads.”
Dickinson believes art is a powerful way of communication and can be used to turn bad affiliations and situations into positive.
Experience and inspiration towards upcoming exhibition in collaboration with Zari Gallery, London. Derived from UNESCO, PARIS 2015, Exhibition for Woman and Peace, questioned about the theme GLOBAL WARMING gave a question of importance. A greater perspective and understanding of what is important, caring for the future generations both elemental and human to grow together instead of destroying what has sustained us. Understanding the elements we live upon in hope of creating a theme visual enough to give an impact to the viewer in a universal language of understanding – Past , present, future. Lines, shadow and light.
A story that is about the time we made hoping to create a topic of discussion. Letting people connect to the general knowlege of what they allready know, or even may lead to learn.
Port ligat, Legends of Art, – it is all a part of the journey to a complete future.
To see spherically in a 4th dimension perspective. Find an area of focus, spherically twist, turn and rotate connecting the best outcome of lines, shadow and light. To create a linkage between me and the viewer as a universal language of understanding.
Seeking answers in the shadows and bring them to the light. To reveal or emphisise the importance and hidden secret of the link or point of view.
