No Feeling is Final
11.08. – 11.09.2022
In the exhibition No Feeling is Final, Tyra Tingleff presents a series of new, large format paintings. Hung leaning out from the walls, these towering works have a physical, almost bodily presence in the space.
More or less tangible forms and lines disperse out over the raw canvases. Meandering, layer upon layer, built up of colour pigments and oil, heavily diluted in turpentine. The many courses twist and turn with and within each other, away and toward each other in movements oscillating between friction and harmony, creating a gradually expanding universe without beginning or end.
With a passionate connection to colour, Tingleff explores emotional approaches to painting with oils through non-figurative painting. The characteristic titles of the works can be read as poetic fragments or witty quips. They offer a small glimpse into the artist’s thoughts and feelings whilst also emboldening an ever-present ambiguity in Tingleff’s work. This reflects the artist’s distinctive approach to the historical framework of abstract painting.
The Berlin- and Hønefoss-based artist Tyra Tingleff (b. 1984), a former student of The Royal College of Art, London; The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Copenhagen; and Bergen Academy for Art and Design (now part of the University of Bergen), Norway, has taken part in a large range of exhibitions internationally and in Norway, with recent solo exhibitions at ChertLüdde Gallery, Berlin; The Sunday Painter Gallery, London; and Campoli Presti Gallery, Paris.
The exhibition is supported by Arts Council Norway and The Relief Fund for Visual Artists.
