artist statement

anders bülow works with painting and sculpture and his artworks often locate themselves in a field that oscillates between these two medias. his formal gambit is minimalism and the monochrome painting but the end point is a completely different matter. the minimalism of the paintings is not a predefined artistic goal. rather it is a starting point, a premise without compromise that is stated prior to the execution of the work and is subsequently followed to the completion. the choice of colour, shape and material often consists of minor elements in an attempt to eliminate all irrelevant, meaning-bearing disturbances. bülow’s focus is directed to the process and his work is centered around basic problems regarding the relationship between colour, surface, space and gravity.

anders bülow is employed by kkart.
