White Open Doors III

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.   The art colourist, Janne Hoegshoej, has given the Berlin painting this cannonading:   WHAT IS IT? A MAP? A CITY? BERLIN? I'm attracted. Seduced. Have left reality. [...]

 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. However, Fredericia Art and Culture has also invited me to make a MAP of Fredericia. This is phase 1 ... [...]

Prints made in Germany

In January I had a number of paintings printed on large, thick, acid-free sheets for my upcoming exhibitions in Frankfurt and Fredericia. The printed versions will form the basis of new varieties of the chief works and I'm really excited to see how everything will work.

Salon White Open Doors

(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 [...]

Brand new old images of the enemy in my atelier

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' ...  

‘Forward March’

Follow the outgoing models on their way to Vedbaek ... 'Forward March' ... These days I'm painting several new 'outgoing-model'-paintings. I've lined them up in my atelier - still lacking a few daring steps to go out gracefully and delicately ...

It was destiny ….

'I had a dream of living in a cottage in Denmark. Of raising the Danish flag, Dannebrog, and of sitting in my garden. At 28 I felt as having lived my whole life' ... that's how our regional newspaper, Fyns Stiftstidende, quotes me in a small article, which took it's start at Foensskov a few weeks ago! And a lot happend between 28 and 59 - and tells the story of how my paintings grow from life around med past, [...]

It has all gone fish-shaped …

Everything has gone fish-shaped in the Foensskov studio … water and fish, sand and web between the toes! It’s crawling with fish in swarms. Big and small fish in all imaginable colours, from ahead and from the back moving in and out. Live under surface, peaceful, multi-ethnic coexistence. A constant ducking in our wonderful, persistent summer – wondering how far I can take those fish. Delving into authentic and less authentic colour scales …
