Paintings from Hollufgård
The color and atmosphere of the landscape I inhabit has always informed my work. Although these individual works sometimes take on a look that appears aerial in nature, they are more aptly described as accumulations of layers of information, taken apart bit by bit visually and reassembled. The paintings can be compared to layers of strata, fields and layers of sky, or the minutia under my feet as I walk. One project, which has extended over a period of years, centers around contemporary notions of the sublime. Initially, I spent many months in a far portion of the Baltic documenting and absorbing the colors and surfaces around me on the Danish island of Møn. Having spent most of my life in Denmark, I long for flat open expanses of sky, rocks and water. Nordic color, atmosphere and surfaces have informed these works created at Hollufgård artists residency in Odense.
