PLATOS CAVE, is Tor Nielsens second painting in the project From Ink to Oil.
TOR: “I developed new techniques and uncovered new styles during my work on this painting. So that is really a success. The next step is to refine these so I can express myself even more clearly”.
But what is actually Platos Cave? With Platos Cave Tor Nielsen continues his interest in consciousness. More specifically, the famous philosopher Plato from Ancient Greece tells a story called the Allegory of the Prisoners in the Cave. This famous Allegory covers the relation between the human mind and the “external” reality.
