Acrylic on canvas Inspiration Lone Mørkøre is inspired by the fantastic landscape of the Faroe Islands in the North Atlantic, with their small colorful houses scattered in magnificent nature. The islands will break away from Denmark, float freely without today's overconsumption.
RITHVA LANDLER Mixed media and painting Inspiration Technique is chosen based on material and context, with love for the craft. The universe is dreamy, figurative, colorful and often sensual. A poetic approach to the being of life.
KATHRINE VAN GODT
Sculpture Inspiration The modified pig figure is created by Kathrine van Godt with paint, recycled objects and reel fur. As a sculpture, the pigs bring out smiles and create joy, but behind the whimsy lie words, thoughts and reflection.
Paintings and Mixed Media Inspiration Jette Dodensig creates her works with a brush or trowel or, sometimes, with something else entirely. Layer upon layer with different techniques, fantasies take shape on the canvas with inspiration from nature, music or experiences.
Acrylic on canvas Inspiration In his art, Michael Grønlund, ranges widely and pays tribute to life and its many facets. The artistic style moves from figurative colored Cuban paintings to abstractions on large canvases.
Paintins and Silk Print Inspiration Henrik Dencker is a pop artist. He starts from well-known icons and interprets these with a twist. The starting point can be the comics universe, underground culture or simply the triviality of everyday life.
