PALMS. Visions of the good life. A dream, a hope, an escape from everyday life. With candles and ashtrays in the shape of palms or a glitter palm in an ice-cream sundae, we take a bit of it home—an admission that we dream a dream of great happiness, combined with a genial petty bourgeois mentality.

Morten Buch

The Last Resort
Morten Buch (born in 1970) is part of a new generation of painters in Scandinavia that link the legacy of Danish Expressionism to the minimalist coolness of American formal vocabulary. The portrayal of everyday objects and interiors attain a room-filling presence within the format of the painting and this lends objects a “familiar strangeness”, that of a monumental, intense drawing that links in with the manipulations of today’s digital image culture.
This comprehensive publication of the artist’s first solo exhibition in a German gallery has been created in cooperation with Kunstmuseum Horsens and shows works from recent years as well as the newest paintings.
