S|2 New York is pleased to present Jim Thorell: 7 Paintings, the first solo exhibition in the United States of Swedish painter Jim Thorell. This exhibition exemplifies the artist’s delight in simultaneously revealing and concealing the inherent chaos of the subconscious. Thorell’s acrylic amalgamations result in whimsical foliage that the artist prunes and shapes to create a sense of order in a setting of natural havoc. A lush unconsciousness develops on the canvases through a collation of form and color, recording the artist’s expressionistic governance of the minds workings and creative energy. Beneath the bright and positive gestural colors, images of fantastical creatures and vegetation germinate into an intuitive madness that the artist fights back to create these fertile dream-like compositions.
