The nüüd.berlin gallery, founded by Henner Merle in Berlin-Mitte in autumn 2021, will present from 19 November 2021 current works by the German-Danish artist Bo Larsen created during the pandemic.

Under the title NEON, the artist shows abstract works that have an expressive colourfulness and develop a special luminosity through the use of neon pigments.

For Bo Larsen, the process of painting involves several procedures, from dividing the canvas with tapes, preparing special colours that are given individual and characteristic painting properties by oils and waxes, to applying the tension-laden colour paste to the painting surface and tearing off the glued surfaces. This creates colour fields of varying translucency. In the post-processing Larsen uses so-called racks, which make it possible to apply oil paint impasto to the canvas and leave it to chance which areas of the picture surface remain free and untouched. This process contrasts conceptually with masking off the canvas, where the artist can determine which areas come into contact with paint and which do not. The unusual combination of these different painting techniques is what makes these particular colour landscapes so appealing, moving between action painting, pop art, street art and abstraction.
