17.11.07-09.12.07 ELLEN JACOBSEN – “ADOLESCENT ANGEL”
The discourse for this show is Wings represented in the shapes, as poetry and as a metaphor. The work Ellen Jacobsen presents is a processing of materials, and a research into visual potentials and expressions. With a conscious use of colours and the main element being the subject Wings, she presents sculptures cast in reinforced plaster.

The drawings exhibited in this show are a series of over 80 original works executed in pencil, and have never before been displayed or shown. “The drawings were a liberation from the painstaking meticulous drypoints.
