Seeking New Horizons

HG MadsenĀ“s paintings show turists in action. The paintings are basically naturalistic in style but by stripping away the context (here the turist destination) he captures something bigger. Now the turists could be anywhere and therefore also here. Without the context what remains is the turist act it self: the observation. An observation always asks the question obout what has been observed. Therefore the artwork needs the contribution of the spectator, and therefore the artworks are forever open.
