The exhibition shows works conceived in Sicily. Spanning works in oil on
canvas and paper cuttings, through which he interrogates the relationship
between form, color and space- the show features works that have been
influenced by the landscape of Sicily together with seminal works which
remain at the core of Mortensen’s practice.
In his paintings, he expresses the sound of colours through chromaticjuxtapositions. They are part of a geometric abstraction emphasising theluminous surface of the painting into natural and crossed lines. A careful lookof his paintings reveals the deteriorating marks of his brush strokes, gentlydistorting the two-dimensional picture surface and creating a surprise to theobserver.
