Mary Iverson - 'GEOMETRY' 5/8 - 5/9 - 2011
Mary Iverson has long possessed a fascination for the port of Seattle, beginning with plein air studies of its cranes and gradually evolving to her current paintings which focus more on shipping containers. Stylistically, she reduces the container terminal to a complex network of overlapping planes and construction lines in dramatic perspective.
Conceptually, her work deals with issues of accumulation, industry, time and ambiguity. Iverson received an MFA in painting from the University of Washington and a BFA in Design from Cornish College of the Arts. She has exhibited extensivly across the U.S and is presently part of a exhibition ‘SEATTLE AS COLLECTOR’ at The Seattle Art’s Museum.

JORAM ROUKES - 'THE DECAY OF BAMBI' - 9/9 - 5/10 - 2011
We have the pleasure of inviting you to one of the finest contemporary artists from the netherlands within the world of Street Art. Joram Roukes become famed as an artist within the world of graffiti. famous & infamous at the same time he has decorated walls and trains across europe. He now mostly focuses on art within the established institutions. Despite this fact he never forgets his heritage.
The Show ‘THE DECAY OF BAMBI’ is a tribute to this underground subculture.
The theme for the show focuses on the ambivalens that the western society is dealing with namely the new puritanism vs. The total liberitarian voices. The works presented in the show will focus on the differences that we are sourounded with; the pretty contrary the grusome, the humane contrary the animalistic. Contrasts is the key.
Bambi is a figure contemplated as a safe reference point in most peoples imagination, Joram questions this by taking us into a visual world of known childlike figures from Captain america to Spongebob, but presents them in a state that is uncanny and inspiring.
Joram Roukes had a show together with Shephard Fairey earlier in 2011, who just visited copenhagen and decorated the facade at jagtvej 69. 'The Decay Of Bambi' is a show that clearly demonstrates why Joram Roukes is one of the most hyped Street Artists as of now.

10/2 - 21/3 2012 ERIK JEOR - KONGEN AF DANMARK // THE KING OF DENMARK
We proudly introduce af new artist to join the gallery ERIK JEOR - The show reflects and tries to reinterprete Morten Feldmans, symphonic outline 'The king of Denmark'.
The outcome is giant abstract works, which evokes feelings of pain, mystery, sea monsters, laboratory mistakes, and soundscapes. Imagine a world where you want to live but can't inhabit.
The exhibition is curated by Charlotte Kim Boed.
The following is Erik Jeor's own text for the show:
The King of Denmark
By placing the paper facing down on a piece of cotton on top of a wood panel and moist it the surface is made both flat and dry. The paper registers the moist and a brush draws new canals. The water canals generate sharp edges toward the dry. Helped by the tension of the water’s surface pigment is allowed to flow, paced according to the paper’s tilt and sensitivity. The movements are repeated, guarded; erase traces of earlier movement, or to change the course of the painting. Chance control initially. However, patience, expectation, and boredom play equal parts. Within the monotonous and repetitive develops characters – in the tension between control and chance. The watercolour’s feather light directness – the strength within / of the medium / technique.
Here I work with a series of paintings developed in dialogue with Morton Feldman’s percussion solo The King of Denmark. Feldman wrote the piece in August of 1964 in Coney Island. The life on the beach had inspired him to compose for a solo percussionist. Feldman drew a graphic score for fingers, hands and arms leaving the notation open and prevented for repetition. In relation to other percussion solo these soft sounds are entirely different.
The piece is about Christian X who during the Nazi occupation of Denmark carried the yellow Star of David. The identification with the other gives depth and seriousness to the piece, it touches. Feldman would call this expression silent resistance, with reference to the power of military music.
Constantly the sound of Feldman in the studio and the rhythm of the laying of paint is affected by the way in which the accords arrive, and interlaced with silence. The rhythms are irregular, overlap and pas, independently of any hierarchy. Focus shift, something ugly appears, a collage of trash, incite a leap, the ethics of the continuous aesthetic judgements.
The paintings inhabit their own individual score, each piece express something that cannot be repeated. What happens next? Does death allow for movement? Is death silent?
Erik Jeor, 2012
ALAN RANKLE (GB) Soloshow with new works- OCCUPY NATURE; Wilderness Approaching March 24 - April 21- 2012
For his first solo exhibition at Gallery B15 in Copenhagen, Alan
Rankle has created a suite of works:
Occupy Nature : Wilderness Approaching from his ongoing series -
Landscape Painting Project.
These paintings emerge from Rankle's continuing absorption in the
metaphors and metaphysics of wilderness in relation to the culture of
cities, provoking the question central to all present day landscape
art - Is it possible to relate to wilderness in any meaningful way
from inside the imagined security of the city both 'real' and 'cyber',
or is it ironically now like the relationship we have to themed
environments such as Disneyworld and Dubai?
As increasingly catastrophic emergencies threaten the ecological
balance of the planet, the essential question of our relationship to
the natural world is evermore crucial. In his exploration of
historical landscape art as a subject Alan Rankle provokes a dialogue
which considers the role of art in creating the conceptual background
to present day attitudes to the environment.
Alan Rankle born 1952 is a graduate of Goldsmiths' College, London and
has exhibited widely since his first solo exhibition at the Institute
of Contemporary Art, London in 1973.
This recent series of paintings have been made following a
internationally acclaimed series of exhibitions with Kirsten Reynolds
with whom he collaborates as Rankle & Reynolds, in Milan, Rome,
Copenhagen, Lugano, Brighton and London.
Paintings by Alan Rankle have recently been purchased by The Tramman
Trust via The Art Fund for the following museums:
Southampton City Art Gallery
Gallery Oldham, Manchester
Touchstones museum, Rochdale
Blackburn Art Gallery and Museum
Hastings Art Gallery & Museum

Jesper Palm @ B15. The artist will be present to answer your questions
between 17-20. There will also be an artist talk at the opening beginning at 19 o'clock.
Jesper Palm's work emits a storyline, each work is produced by the means of various medias before the actual paint is applied. A movie sequence is carried out, addtionaly a scene with varying compositions carried out by professional models is photographed. This stylized situation creates the genesis of the work about to take place.
Standing in front of the canvas, you are caught in a filmstill. A dramatic reality is about to take place. The drama is ever there, but the actual story you create.
Hear the artist speak about the details of the works, and the long process leading up to the selection of each motif. At 19 o'clock we will serve sushi and riesling, preparing you to listen. We hope to see you.
KLAAS VAN DER LINDEN / NO LIGHT WITHOUT DARKNESS - 15/12 - 16/1

Lisbeth Eugenie Christensen has produced a series of new works on paper to be shown in her first solo show at GALLERY B15. The show also consists of several of the sketches and outlines that is the genesis of the larger works presented.
The title of the exhibition is Playmate, because it is important to emphazize the humor and the playfull spirit rendering the artistic practise of Lisbeth Eugenie Christensen. On an ad hoc basis the works exhibited suggests a constant workflow where each piece becomes and extension of the prior.
Lisbeth Eugenie Christensen has exhibited on several important solo and group projects, amongst these it is relevant to mention Himmerlands Art Museum in 2012, and Ringsted galleriet together with Per Ahlmann, and latest in 2013 at Vestjyllands Kunstpavillion.

MELLON COLLIE & the INFINITE SADNESS
JORAM ROUKES - 27/9 - 8/11
The exhibition is rendering a visuel display of the wild and avry vocals from the album by Smashing Pumpkins. The exhibition is hence a close dialogue between two artistic mediums, art as music and art as a painted canvas.
Joram Roukes has dwelled with themes from the music, and transforming those themes into objects, that are directly linked to his own subjective understanding of Billy Corgan's poetic verses.
