Kaare Golles (b. 1985) lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark. In 2014 he graduated from Malmö Art Academy, Master of Fine Art, Malmö, Sweden. Golles is first and foremost a sculptor but works in such media as installation and painting as well. Kaare Golles’ work revolves around the fragmentation of the human figure in relation to the human condition in contemporary times, manifested in his ongoing repetition of motives such as the night, black, soil, ashes, stone, ruins and body parts. Consistently, the works avoid any sentimental aspirations for reconciliation with a world and imagery that rarely escapes extensive, inhuman barbarism.
