I have a weakness for the pairing of feminine and masculine elements. Like pairing a flimsy, flowing sundress with a motorcycle jacket. The mixed media work of Line Juhl Hansen shows off characteristically male and feminine abstract elements in a way that results in work that marries the graphic and expressive beautifully.
Graphic typography, scribbles and liberal touches of black temper the happy, candy colored swaths of painterly texture. These evocative details lend weight and gravity to each canvas, inviting us in for a closer look.
Like the strength of a woman, these touches are lingering just below the surface, peeking in and out. We catch a glimpse of the resilience behind the sweetness and beauty.
