Friday night we had the pleasure of hosting the opening of TheMoen’s one-month long exhibition Eye Candy here at arteriet. The pieces on display show TheMoen’s versatile talent, both when it comes to the genre and material of his art and his exhibition truly fulfills the promise of the title.

The intricacy of his drawings makes it hard to step away from them as one is left looking for even more secrets and details within them, and the colorful paintings draw us in with all their brightness.

Also on display were several figures made of pumice stone that had been found in the Lumber area, a sweet reminder that art is all around us if we only go looking for it.

It was also a treat to have the recently recovered “Narkobildet” (The Drug Picture) on display, a painting that was stolen from his studio 12 years ago, and thus carries secrets from that time and journey that we may never know of.

Attendance on Friday was good and really the perfect amount, as it left space for the guests to be able to take in all the art without feeling too crowded. All seemed to have an enjoyable time, with nice company and conversations, refreshments and let us not forget about the delicious soup. It was a wonderful night.
