Konrad Jansma at Exposure Art Gallery

Saturday, January 30, 2010

Konrad Jansma lives and works in the North East of England. His primary inspiration is landscape - both the natural landscapes of the Northumbrial national park, and the industrial scenery of the Tyne estuary. Recently he has become interested in interpreting the landscapes of SL and is showing here some studies made of the Wastelands and the old (now defunct) districts of Satoo and Cetus.

Konrad's overall aim at present is to explore the boundaries between representation and abstraction through his idiosyncratic development of Abstract Expressionism.

He generally works, in RL, from sketches and photographs making an underpainting in acrylic on paper or canvas and then finishing in oil.

Most of the images in SL are available for sale in RL (contact Konrad for RL prices and shipping information).

The current exhibition features some of Konrad's more recent work. Older work can be seen in a number of other locations - please IM Konrad for LM's if interested. New experimental work can currently be seen at Konrad's gallery in Wedge.

The exhibit opens at 2 pm SLT on Sunday, January 31, 2010 at Exposure Art Gallery in Tabula Rasa (http://slurl.com/secondlife/Tabula%20rasa/141/40/27) with music by DJ Frequency Picnic!
