lancscapes is to me a very old fashioned way of working.
But to me it is just like
endulging in the memories from my childhood, when I grew up
in Odsherred in Denmark, where many landscape painters were
My first memory of a
painter was the very well known Kalle Bovin, who was lying
on the road outside our summerhouse playing the flute or
maybe it was the trumpet. I was about 5 years old, and some
days later I found him sitting with his easel and the many
beautiful colors, which I still can see in my mind. When I
grew older, I met many of the painters up there like Poul S.
Nielsen and Holmer Trier. At that time I had of course no
premonition, that I myself would become a painter, and
although I normally work in quite another way, I have tried
to pay my respect to my childhood memories and to the people
- first of all my mother, to Jaja and fru Jaja and my
mothers many friends - who gave them to me by painting some landscapes too - and
found out that landscapes are governed by the same rules as
other forms of painting.
