"We are delighted that the project is supported by the city of Bagnoles de l'Orne. And I am very happy that Bagnoles de l'Orne Tourisme is associated with this event with an extension of the exhibition to the entertainment and congresses and at the Tourist Office", he adds.

B Art – A residency for Danish artists

The six artists who will settle in the Château du Gué aux Biches and who will exhibit in Bagnoles de l'Orne are professional artists whose artistic inspiration is expressed mainly on canvas, but also via ceramics and objects such as PigArt by Kathrine van Godt: varied and contemporary styles ranging from naturalist and impressionist expression to abstract art and pop art.

In addition to PigArt by Kathrine van Godt, you can also discover landscapes by Lone Mørkøre, and figurative portraits and abstract works by Michael Grønlund. As for Jette Dodensig and Rithva Landler, they both work with mixed media and paint, mixing different artistic forms. The organizer Henrik Dencker is also a pop artist and will also participate in the exhibition with his paintings which will complete the universe of Kathrine van Godt.

LONE MØRKØRE

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

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.

JETTE DODENSIG

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.

MICHAEL GRØNLUND

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.

HENRIK DENCKR

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.
