Morten Lassen | New works on paper

23 November 2021

Morten Lassen is an artist who challenges us to see the world differently. He draws our attention to the intangible realm of cyberspace—encouraging us to consider our digital consumption. We live in a data-filled time, where subliminal messaging saturates our content and our view becomes increasingly distorted. We find ourselves lost in an Baudrillardian hyperreality. 

Yet it is Lassen’s exploration of the digital world through his analogue practice that resonates with us so profoundly. Through his use of traditional media and raw mark making, Lassen draws our attention back to the organic—the physical world and all its beauty. Like nodes in a network, Lassen’s powerful gridlines act as a matrix reconnecting and binding humanity. Viewing Lassen’s works, his lines and layers of paint remind us of the layers of history in our ever-changing landscape.
