Jack Kabangu; borgerkrigen (The Civil War)
borgerkrigen (The Civil War) is a solo exhibition of a collection of new paintings by the Copenhagen-based artist Jack Kabangu, which showcases a hold of personal significance to the artist and intends to express the encounter and fusion of different cultures and the impact it has had.
The psychological connection between the external world and the everyday environment that make up human interaction greatly inspires the artist's creation and influences themes and themes that run through the works of this new series. Energy is a quality painting that comes from the heart, and it is this emotional quality that the artist wishes to convey to the viewer. Energy is a shared emotion, through which the artist's physical behavior is able to relate thoroughly to his subject.
A self-taught artist, his visual language combines his African cultural roots with his Danish sensibility. In the paintings, light and shadow work in harmony in a vibrant palette that emphasizes the loneliness of the characters in each work: they are masters of their own universe. The external landscape is a visual play of the internal psychosis, framing the characters shown in each piece. For him, the connection is primal, going back to the origins of human beings - energy is the essence of breath, body, and everyday interactions.
