 In the work of young Danish artist Alexander Tovborg the carnivalesque, fantastic and folkloric inform what is ultimately a highly personal cosmology.

As titles such as 'The Moral', 'The Creator' or 'The Pilgrim' make clear, Tovborg's eclectic universe is underpinned by spiritual impulse; a hybrid belief system consisting of a diverse fusion of convention and arcana.

Sharing stylistic similarities with fellow Danish artists such as Peter Linde Busk, it's tempting to contemplate the emergence of a very recognisably Danish school of recent contemporary painting, with names such as Tal R a major influence.

But the wide-ranging nature of Tovborg's output and confident projections of an internal world make him an artist who very much stands on his own merits.
