The paintings making up ColourRide are part of a larger series, where the artist Dorthe Kærgaard experiments with people and horse figures. In Dorthe Kærgaard’s paintings, humanity plays the main role. She attempts to portray our search through life with all its dilemmas and choices. The ideas derive from experiences, poetry, literature, the course of the world and by antique myths reflecting life today. Everyone will be able to see what the paintings represent. The motives contain many possibilities for interpretation. Dorthe Kærgaard paints recognisable figures and objects, but the viewer will in many cases probably wonder what is going on in the motif. Facing a work of art that wakes one’s wonder and curiosity is important to Dorthe Kærgard. The questions are often more fruitful and meaningful than the answers.
“Dorthe Kærgaard’s paintings are a reference to the inhumane. In style and choice of colour, a manifestation of geometry and harmony, but with motifs as almost chaotic balances, surreal combinations making the paintings stand still, offering a timeless experience and reflection.
The paintings are so saturated with impressions and plans that you feel the moment intensely, as if the moment is both now and always. They become myths. “(Torben Tangsig, 2010)
