For the 3rd time I open the doors to my house and atelier at Foensskov widely. At this year's ‘White Open Doors III’ event you can see part of the now half-finished RoCKS Show which you have - I hope - followed from the very beginning. All the RoCKS pieces, the paintings and sculptures, are stacked - exactly as they are right now. It's a good chance to see below the surface of pieces which will soon be ready for exhibition. [...]

For Sabre's HQ at Kurfürstendam, Berlin, I've just painted this picture of the area. You are supposed to jump into the painting with your eyes - lit it is the case with all my MAPS - and then you wander through the well-known area which is now changed and offer new experiences.

Working hard on new paintings for an upcoming solo show in Fredericia starting April, 26. Right now, my working title is ‘FOR KIDS ONLY, no not really? ' The exhibition - as child-friendly as possible - is part of the 75 anniversary of Fredericia Art and Culture. Much more about that show when we get closer to the opening date.

(Free translation = Art exhibition on all walls with wide open doors) The art salon - which is a dominant exhibition trend right now - orchestrate art and establishes new settings far away from the just-painted calculating walls of the galleries. Instead, they work playfully with funny, playful exhibiting where several or many works meet on one wall. Hanging close from floor to ceiling or in groups. A large, beautiful appartment or a house with personality and warmth invites to [...]

British marines from 'The battle of Copenhagen' - I've been on them for a long time, however, they have not been particularly cooperative and accommodating. A series of 9 brand new old images of the enemy can be tough to struggle with. The all came sailing through Oresund on their way to a ferocious sea battle .... on April, 2, 1801. Hope to be able to finish - and to make a spectacle of them at 'Forward March' ...
