Zenit

November 2010 I had a show in Zenit Gallery, Copenhagen, which took its starting-point in the notion of Beauty and the difficulty it creates for the artist.
With basis in photos I had taken due to the beauty I found in the motive, I tried to pin down, why it is so difficult for a painter like me just to surrender to beauty. For many years it has been a ‘no go’ in contrast to the opinion in for example The Golden Age.
‘Beautiful painting’ is so much tabooed, that you feel like ignoring it and paint along, whatever you like.
In these paintings I incorporate my photos embedded in the canvas, and paint with it or against it until the beauty has disappeared or shows more clearly.
In the show these works juxtapose older paintings with the same theme.
