Ole Martin Lund Bø has a distinctive minimal, interdisciplinary approach to his work. He playfully misuses materials as an entry into a larger paradox. His materials and subject matter are inscribed with meaning, radiating power and desire. They act as excerpts of architectural structures or forms of social decorum. The works themselves, however, are extractions rather than abstractions, suggesting an act or a certain behavior. The formal minimalism engenders the feeling that the intended subject is somehow missing from the work, existing just outside the field of the canvas, photograph or sculpture. The monochrome surfaces are stage sets, codes and catalysts, producing their own specific rules of engagement.
