by Richard Vine

MembersReviewsPopularityAverage ratingConversations
31None633,981 (4)None
With a huge cult following among lovers of figurative painting, outsider art fans and students, Norwegian artist Odd Nerdrum has carved out a unique niche in the world of contemporary art. With his Old Master style and his often apocalyptic subject matter, Nerdrum rejects the tropes of Modernism in favor of an emotionalism which, when combined with his remarkable painterly talents, produces works that are not only visually arresting, but which also call into question the very foundations of contemporary art. Odd Nerdrum: Sketches, Drawings and Paintingsbrings together the recent work completed since the publication of Storyteller and Self-Revealerin 1998, as well as earlier work, including, for the first time, an extensive selection of drawings and sketches.
