Edmund Okstom – DVNST
Edmund Okstom’s world is an uncanny lucid dream in colourful shades of grey. With sharp-edged precision he depicts handsome young men in industrial landscapes invaded by gigantic vapour clouds. With deadpan face they are silently involved in strange actions. In other works there are objects, some of them hovering between figuration and abstraction, overexposed to light and casting hard shadows until they turn suspect at some point, even scary – like a rampant baroque furniture ornament, the pair of shoes behind a curtain, or a dark enigmatic bin, precariously balancing the equilibrium of its triangular canvas.
