GROTESQUERIE

Galerie Nordenhake Stockholm presents American painter Patricia Treib’s first exhibition in Scandinavia. The title of the exhibition stems from the Italian “grottesco,” meaning “of a cave,” describing an extravagant style of painting rediscovered in the (cave-like) ruins of ancient Roman buildings and then reinterpreted in Rome at the end of the 15th century. The term specifically refers to the decorative flourishes and fanciful elements within these frescos: borders and frames involving metamorphic depictions of plant-like forms and animals.
