about

niels munk plum

i love how these colors change - yellow - pink -orange

the work of niels munk plum is channelling the sheer sensation of youth, sex and being too erotic, fabulous and loud for oneself to understand.

to quote plum directly “life is life, and then we die” – alas, one must draw the conclusion, that everything must be what we make of it.

 

the hot topic of being young with too many choices, contra feeling obliged to do what is reasonable, seems to be floating over our heads, while we go into the young artist’s body of work.

niels does not want to feel obliged to do anything, and instead he seems to be grasping for a self-absorbant search for authenticity. going for what he thinks is fabulous and intriguing, plum plays with various mediums and bucket loads of color, to make a point, stand his ground and tell his stories.

 

to quote the artist quoting paris hilton:

the only rule is. don’t be boring.
