Galerie Nordenhake Stockholm starts the 2016 season with a group exhibition that explores the slippage between abstraction and figuration within a flat graphic aesthetic in painting, collage, assemblage and photography. The show explores the idea of planes - a frontal plane, or two crude planes - background and foreground, compressed together. Many of the proposed artists touch on or connect to historic moments or movements that they refresh or reinterpret.
