V1 Gallery is pleased to present a new series of five limited lithographic prints from the Copenhagen-based artist Mischa Pavlovski Andresen, printed with Edition Copenhagen (est. 1959).
“In Pavlovski Andresen’s work you feel the dramatic shift of the seasons, the heavy pull of the moon, and the radiant energy of the sun.” – Jesper Elg
Tracing the evolution of Mischa Pavlovski Andresen’s unique visual vocabulary through his printing practice, the series highlights his expressive gestures and primordial references to pre-Christian stone sculptures, wood carvings, and cave paintings. Ancient and contemporary alike, time passes in the motifs; they sprout, take root, bloom, wither, decompose, and begin again. Reflecting art nouveau impulses, otherworldly flora and fauna grow organically from a vibrant flowerbed and blend into an almost abstract composition of lines, shapes, colors and space. Elsewhere, in a deep forest, a giant nude wanderer holds a pilgrim’s staff, as if it were an object of worship, except religiosity seems beside the point. Communion with something earthy, animalistic or psychedelic, where language escapes us, but which is nevertheless, undeniably, shared and felt.
The series is available now in-gallery and online at v1gallery.com/store
