additive color mixing


Alchemic oil painting

The process of alchemic painting is a magic feeling

This technique demands a lot of patience, and each painting may take a month or more to complete. It's a lot of processes.


Building up a texture with white painting mixed with grated schalk.


The first layers i pure primary and secondary colors.


Second layers of colors: Complementary mixing in transparency.


Then I lost patience, and overpainted the picture with one layer of opaque paint. It felt like a defeat, however this painting, "The gift," won the Gold medal at the Medusa Aurera contest at the International Accademy of Arts in Rome - Best figurative painter 2018 - 2019.


I ended up creating another painting, "Angel Station," by using the same figure, and worked it as I would have done in the previous painting, "The Gift." Though the background is painted normally. This painting won the Gold Medal in the contest " Apollo Dionisaico" at the Accademy for Arts, Poetry and Signification in Rome 2020.


My palette

That's my permanent palette for all my paintings:

Used colors: Ultramarine + Alizarin crimson + Indian yellow

Each painting is made by mixing these colors additively in transparent layers, upon a textural ground of white painting mixed with grated chalk. Using soft brushes, and a scalpel.

Transformationism


1989 - A leap into a unpredictable life as a visual artist

Inspired by a fascination with the American satire magazine MAD's illustrator Don Martin's drawings and the Danish Caricature artist Roal Als. Seven years of work at my father's architect's studio, studies of right-wing extremism during world war II and the French Revolution, the breakdown of the Berlin wall, Nietzches delirious speech about the death of God, Freud's dream interpretation, Salvador Dalí's surrealistic universe, Kierkegaard's existentialistically concept of irony, and concept of Anxiety, poetry by the Danish author Thorkild Bjørnvig, Mozart's opera Don Juan, and Pink Floyd's musical interpretation of reality, in 1989, I burned all the bridges behind me. I jumped into life with the red soft forms of insecurity - into life as a full-time painter. In the beginning, I painted everything with a wide paintbrush. Soft shapes. Without much detail, and to my surprise, the painting became my soul mirror, each time revealing my Anxiety. The basic form of these soft forms of Anxiety comes from a cartoon smiley that I developed up through the 80s for diligent use as graffiti and on all surfaces that could be drawn on. As I start painting, the smile suddenly turns into a scream, and if one were to sound my early pictures, Pink Floyd's "The big gig in the sky" would be very appropriate.
