Anders 's painterly practice processes materiality and its dissolvement as both method and subject. This process defined approach investigates the slow and careful use of simple classic materials which references the history of creation and decay. Overall his work is characterized by a monochromatic, non-figurative and silent universe where the nuances creating each piece are reduced to their minimal expression. Their ephemeral quality results from a constant shifting between occurrence and dissolvement. The vague sense of tactility, created by a light surface – or the shadow projected by the material structure – reveals that the piece exists … and breathes.
Bülow's recent solo exhibitions include Anders Bülow/Yonder, Henningsen Gallery, Copenhagen (2012); Blueprint, Krognoshuset, Lund. His work was also included in group shows including Unified surfaces, Hjørring grafiske værksted (2013), and Art Copenhagen, Henningsen Gallery (2012).
