Kjell Varvin is an artist based in Norway. He composes and decomposes combinations of disparate objects in a white corner or on a wall with the specific intent to avoid narrative or symbolic associations. The results are pure compositions located in a three-dimensional space. Compositions which are exactly what they are, objects put in association thanks to their visual values.
A fragile yet stable balance is always sought among the objects in the installations: thin lines colliding into flat surfaces and found objects. The same objects are then recomposed in series which the artist calls “unstable variations” to state that each composition is never a final state, but a point in an evolving line of possibilities.
