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.

Roger Wardin

Roger Wardin’s work conceals degrees of dissolution, dispersal and melting away. Wardin conducts concentrated examinations of pictorial space and materiality. It is often difficult to identify a perspectival arrangement in his paintings and the initial impression is one of a dissolved landscape. Wardin’s reduced, much-broken colour palette is applied in multiple layers and frequently fractured or even removed completely.
The scenarios bathed in brilliant light create atmospherically charged, in-between worlds from which both irritation and attraction emanate.
