GALLERI RIIS

Galleri Riis was founded in Trondheim in 1972 and has been based in Oslo since 1980. From 2011 – 2017 the gallery operated a second space in Stockholm which confirmed the gallery’s importance on the Scandinavian art scene. The gallery now maintains a by appointment showroom in Stockholm. The current exhibition programme reflects a long-standing history, with a primary focus on important contemporary art from the Nordic countries including a selective spotlight on international artists.

At Market Art Fair, Galleri Riis will present a new group of bronze sculptures and small photographic prints by Stein Rønning.

Stein Rønning

Stein Rønning (1953, Norway) pursues an interest in combining painting, photography and object. His photographic prints seem to disguise themselves as painted surfaces and the finely tuned nuances among the works themselves command a heightened sense of attention in the viewer, as well as a calibration of the exhibition space. Rønning employs a similar complex and conceptual approach to his long-standing work with bronze sculptures. For nearly thirty years Rønning has continuously worked with a conceptually informed project, resulting in several iterations of what he calls “indistinctive figurative” bronze sculptures, mostly in small format. Over the last few decades he has also worked with photography, whose compositions are based on tabletop installations of various three-dimensional volumes. Stein Rønning currently lives and works in Oslo.
