NOBA Nordic Baltic contemporary art platform

"Volume" is a series of exhibitions by Holger Nature, which has been developing and changing since 2017. The theme of the paintings is reflections on modernity as a time when the human way of thinking began to tune in to technical progress, something then unimaginably new.

Snowfall, breath of steam, rhythmic movement of metals, overheating, explosion – these images, among others, are used by Nature to create the atmosphere of the exhibition. According to the artist, he was inspired by the scientific romantic paintings of Joseph Wright. The works in the exhibition “Volume III” can be seen as abstractions on the theme depicted in Wright’s paintings – once new possibilities that test the imagination and their fit with the gradually and hardly changing character of a human. The author discusses whether this is nostalgia or whether there is something current in the dynamics of change
