Artist Spotlight: Peter Ravn

A selection of recent work by Copenhagen-based painter Peter Ravn (previously featured here). Featuring his signature male character undertaking what Ravn describes as “a problematic search for his place in modernity,” his oil paintings contain elements of surrealism and confusion. Imbued with a discomforting disquiet, the works also allude to the promise of another path. “Often a bubbling irony coexists with sincerity—as an underlying awareness of life’s absurdity,” Ravn explains. “And perhaps a timely reminder that collapse and crisis are not only connected with pain, but also freedom.”
