ANETTE HARBOE FLENSBURG is famous for her monumental paintings of interiors. Designed as geometric patterns formed out of a grid of vertical and horizontal lines, of light and shadow Flensburg’s works communicate depth from the flat surface of the canvas.
Those still, quiet, empty spaces are used by Flensburg to make a reference to the real world and yet they create a universe that is entirely her own. A universe the artist constructs by using foam board, screens and transparent surfaces assembled together with pins.


The photographic documentation, of the miniature room models built by the artist, serve as a study for her large-format canvases. Taken through the maze of Flensburg’s virtual corridors we are led by the artist beyond the physical reality that she depicts. Through the use of shared points of reference, Flensburg introduces us to new realms where planes and colours acquire abstract qualities in line with painterly traditions of early 20th-century avant-garde.


Her photogravure projects allow the viewer to have a glance into the backstage of her work as a painter. The photo-based graphic work creates a dream-like reality in the maze where the spectator’s gaze wanders through the spaces searching for an exit.
