Guns’N’Porcelain – Magnus Gjoen softens the image of destruction

Guns’N’Porcelain – Magnus Gjoen softens the image of destruction

I love contrasts (hence the reference to the name of legendary Guns’N’Roses). Love, when artist takes extremes of any dimension and collides opposites in most unusual and surprising ways. More surprising – the better…
Magnus Gjoen took the objects that we usually associate with destruction and harm, and illustrated them with soft feel good imagery of fine art, porcelain patterns and classic paintings. Suddenly the tools of destruction transformed into harmless, decorative nick’nacks we can find in our grandma’s fine china cabinet.  (I can completely imagine some sweet old lady personalizing her AK-47 with flowery decoupage). Destructive get’s a friendly facelift.
