Ronny Bank (b. 1971 / Larvik Norway), what is there to see? And what kind of visual reality meets us in the cacophonous, postmodern society? Ronny Bank asks these questions in his paintings. He goes into the culture that surrounds us on a daily basis, the seemingly incoherent amount of images and expressions that confront us in the mass media, in movies, TV series, commercials, all the modern mythologies, the way Andy Warhol did before him, but where Warhol transmitted the photographic presentation directly to the canvas via silk screen - be it Elvis with a gun, Marilyn Monroe or the electric chair, Bank lets his motifs revolve around the purely picturesque, involving his own body, arm and hand; the classical painter's method: acrylic or oil applied to the canvas with a brush. In this way, the subject is filtered through the painter's temper to a greater extent.
