The Danish painter Anette Harboe Flensburg (born 1961) works with paintings that deceive. Her images, devoid of people, look like spaces, corridors or rooms you can move around in. But they are as flat as the canvas. It is only the painter’s use of colour, line, and playing with foreground and background that makes us believe in the illusion of a real interior. It is about painting as architecture, as scale, as poetry. Although her motifs are familiar, it can be difficult to determine the scale of the rooms. These figurative paintings convey a certain melancholy and a feeling of something non-visible in the paintings, behind what we can see. A presence just vaguely sensed as an emptiness or even a sort of magic of the place.
