Amnesia 1 - surreal painting

2020

$5,500

About

"After having worked intensively the portrait I felt like 'chopping heads off'. Recently the bodies more or less disappear to leave mainly the envelope of clothing. I use old photographs that I blow up and make into melancholic paintings of silhouettes and mundane objects from my parents' Danish childhood, ghost paintings all at once ordinary and over realistic, like characters in a silent movie. This 'acephalous approach' permits me to eradicate all representation of the individual and tell a universal tale, less personal and intimate than the story told by the portrait."
