Kim Demåne “Colornized Planet”
In Kim Demåne's fantasy world, humans have been transformed into cyborgs that have created a new low tech world, where we share our place in the universe with animals and nature.
In “Colornized Planet”, Kim Demåne bombards Inkonst’s walls with color and imagination to create an abstract world of imagery. Painting directly on the walls, he creates tears and holes into another universe where the world has collapsed and nature has begun to bloom again. In Kim Demåne’s fantasy world, humans have been transformed into cyborgs that have created a new low tech world, where we share our place in the universe with animals and nature.
Drawing inspiration from cartoon geniuses such as Per Åhlin and Jan Lööf, as well as anime and manga, or Iron Maiden’s Killers covers and old skate illustrations, Kim Demåne creates a completely unique world of images where imagination flows freely. There’s also a recurring social critique of a world in imbalance with itself, where man pillages the planet. But there’s always a hope, a budding spark or a helping hand.
Kim often uses a mixture of fantasy and everyday life as a starting point in his pictures, where history and the future meet in a doomsday vision of sorts. A painting can be based on grandma’s sleepy old workers’ community in Småland, taken into the future where grandma has become a cyborg scurrying the fields looking for a gap into… another world perhaps.
In the exhibition at Inkonst, created the week before the opening, Kim Demåne leaves the figurative pictorial world behind, but uses the same elements and techniques to create something abstract and completely new.
