two wintery days in the north

…well, on north zealand (nordsjælland) that is. The Saturday (Jan 16) was spent on Østerbro more or less. Grey but snowy and that´s just nice.

Book keeping, Saturday 16 Jan 2015

At SMK, Statens Museum for Kunst we saw

*) This reminded me of the great exhibition “The Enchanted City” with works by Palle Nielsen, at Grafikens Hus in Mariefred 1997. I still have the catalogue from that exhibition 🙂

At Gallery Banja Rathnov at Museumsbygningen we saw:

Then, a pleasant Sunday 17 Jan 2015

Snekkersten – Hellebæk – Helsingør


Vestjyllands kunstpavillon

The village Videbæk that lies between the more significant (in size and attractiveness to tourists) cities of Ringkøbing and Herning is since June 2012 blessed with a fine art pavillon. The building is created by Henning Larsen Architects.

I took a visit there on a great September Saturday when everything turned out as good as one could hope. I speak of the route I took from Struer to Videbæk (I drove the small road via Sørvad and Trehøje), the looks and feel of the pavillon, the exhibition and the sceneries I enjoyed after leaving for home from Videbæk (Stadil, Vedersø klit, Thorsminde, Bøvling klit and associated weather drama). These parts of Jutland are good for us.

David Svensson

I payed the fine art museum in Eskilstuna a visit a couple of weeks ago. The Malmö-based artist David Svensson had a little exhibit going which was really delightful. David Svensson works with Light as a most significant force in his works. At the current exhibit we see compositions that uses patinated book pages that glow mildly from inside.

Due to a recent complaint I will not show any pictures of other artists works here so below are some links instead.

Salong! 2010 – again

I have shot four views of the exhibition, on for each wall of the room where the exhibit hangs.
The pictures in original are available on one of my accounts on Flickr where I have added notes that link each work on the wall with the name of the artist.
Well… click on a picture below and it will take you to Flickr and then you’ll see.
