Solo: Soren Sejr

We are thrilled to once again be back at VOLTA New York for the 2016 edition of the fair with a solo presentation (and new body of work) by artist Soren Sejr.

For more information on the fair please visit their site HERE.


Sejr’s stark, confident compositions are chaotic and at times extremely compact but maintain an effortlessness and distinctive style which nods to Modernist sculpture and architecture. It is at once a rather brutalist, quite masculine style which maintains a constant desire for a perfect composition similar to those ideals favored by Kandinsky; yet as a contemporary artist, Sejr’s work also exhibit a tendency toward freneticism, and a playful incorporation of color and negative space. It is a recognizable unadorned aesthetic, almost lackadaisical or folkloric, of balance and harmony, housing an asymmetry and tension that allows the work to reverberate from within their frames. His pieces are known to follow a picturesque tradition with subtle twists as well as a strong sense of spaciousness and presence but with a clear sense of urgency in color as well as composition. Sejr graduated with a BFA from Aarhus Art Akademi in Denmark and currently lives and works in Aarhus.
