About

Leonard Forslund brings together several perspectives – scientific, personal, spatial or historical and political – on a single plane, rendering the painting ambiguous and enabling new connections of meaning to emerge across the given elements. His subject matter frequently includes recognizable objects or photographic material isolated against a monochromatic surface. The images – familiar as well as unfamiliar – that are brought into play in Forslund's paintings typically appear as remediations of pre-existing prototypes from popular culture or art history that are blurred, mirrored or cut up. Leonard Forslund was educated at the Royal Danish Academy of Art in 1988. Forslund is represented in the collections of The National Gallery of Denmark in Copenhagen, Moderna Museet in Stockholm, Museum of Contemporary Art in Helsinki and ARoS in Aarhus among others. In 2009 Leonard Forslund received the Eckersberg Medal.
