This catalogue appears in conjunction with the first solo exhibition of Don Bergland in a European museum, spanning almost a decade of the artist’s career and featuring 70 works. Bergland’s oeuvre is typified by theatrical, neosurrealistic scenarios cloaked in the mysteries of his own philosophy and values. Created through 3D modelling, the soft and bright colours, play of light and shadow, and mannequin-esque characters who interact with the pictured objects and symbols touch on transcendent themes. Doll-like faces, sheep, and ungainly, twisted hybrid creatures are recurring themes through which the artist deftly straddles the boundary between cartoonish and nightmare.
