We had a great evening yesterday at the preview for Norwegian artist Roar Kjærnstad’s exhibition, which runs until 25th October. Many of these works have been produced in the last month while Roar has been resident in Edinburgh. A particularly interesting 안전놀이터new series are his works produced in response to the National Galleries of Scotland, including works responding to artworks by Alison Watt, Francis Bacon and others.

During his stay in Flanders he studied Old Masters like Rubens, Van Dijck and Rembrandt. He has exhibited widely across Europe including in London, Spain, Denmark and Sweden.
