Fragmentarium: A survey of visual work by Kasper Eistrup from the past 10 years. The artistic voice of Kasper Eistrup has been shaped by the collision of several elements, in part by images within images collectively creating a new and expanded narrative.He himself calls it “fragmentarism”, the technical implication being the utilization of both drawing and painting, frequently in the same piece. Even within his painting you find great reach, from meticulous photo-realism to pure expressionism. In similar fashion pieces are often crafted from a number of visual elements, all painted and drawn painstakingly by Eistrup. The undeniable fulcrum is without fail people and the meeting between people – for better and for worse. Or to phrase it differently: life as we live it here and now.
