The Angel and the Last Child on Earth Sat July 26, 2008 Reception BoxHeart


BoxHeart Gallery in Bloomfield:

July 22 – August 16, 2008
The Angel and the Last Child on Earth
God is a little boy in the shadow of November cold silence...not a sound. An angel called innocence whispered your name as you tumbled to the ground.
Digital Paintings by Norwegian Artist: Reinhardt Sobye

Norwegian artist, Reinhardt Sobye, sees quietly and deeply into the void of discrimination, destruction, disguise and human’s presumption. A self-taught artist once painting in gouache and drawing in pastel, Sobye now processes his art work by manipulating his paintings, drawings, and photography with a computer. The result is art work that brilliantly reflects the devastation creeping into poetic landscapes by humanities disregard for the environment. With deep insight, Sobye captures extremely realistic portraits of the sick, the elderly, army deserters, and displaced people illuminating with compassion the alienation of people low on the social ladder. Children are unguarded and innocent, living in poverty that is a result of economic decisions made by government’s misuse of power. Sobye unclothes the reality of war and oppression in all its nakedness; in beautifully composed space. He beckons the viewer into the vast, false structure that holds up our civilization.
