"[...] Face contours. Which is the part that disappears first? Ivan Says: My inspiration for every piece is an old photo.   It is on that very edge of oblivion and memory that he builds his story and makes us restless. He is taking us the long way home. Ivan´s previous work is still fresh in my mind: the black and white portraits blending in sharp strokes, like stearn head shakes. In his latest show "the Good Old World", the portraits display the shame kind of irreconcibility. This time, he´s moved on from the individual to a group level, again so painfully personal. Down the disappearing trail. Behind the frame wich is invisible, but is still there. Like a reflection in the mirror."
