In this piece, you can see many things and events in and amongst, a swan, still life, uzi, dog, game, garden, gun, manor and monkey. It’s this misconception of beauty which Magnus Gjoen wants us to see in a different light, being it weapons, animals or the human race itself. The ‘harshness’ of the weapon is dimmed or even softened by the delicate painting covering the deadly weapon. Camouflaging the gun away. The title suggests beautiful things aren’t perfect, there is always a layer underneath. Its a wonderful piece of art to immerse yourself in!
