About

In his works Eske Kath depicts nature from a somewhat brutal perspective. In his paintings and sculptures tornadoes and volcanic eruptions threaten to disorganise the world and the small, superimposed houses that occasionally reveal the fragile existence of man in his work. Kath’s fascination with the catastrophe echoes the global media images of today and etches them within a pictorial tradition of Romanticism. Just like the romantic artists let the motif of Doomsday stand as a promise of resurrection to new and better times, Kath too lets the end of civilization contain a paradoxical possibility of renewal and rebirth. Eske Kath graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Art in Copenhagen in 2003. His works are found in the collections of Arken Museum of Modern Art in Ishøj, AroS in Aarhus and HEART Museum of Contemporary Art in Herning among others.
