1022 Gallery is pleased to present a collection of evocative abstract paintings and sound art by acclaimed Norwegian artist Tore Wallin. The exhibition opens May 5th and runs through June 2nd, 2012. For over 35 years Tore Wallin has been instrumental in the contemporary art scene of New Orleans. His prolific career as an artist and architect includes architectural sculptures, graphic and advertising design, and music.
For these new works, Wallin explores universal human emotions and the unfolding of consciousness. Using the inner language of subjective thoughts and collective memories, his paintings function more like memories or internal sensations rather than impressions of places and events. The viewer is allowed to experience the work directly, and in their own personal way, while a constantly shifting sound field permeates the space.
