INHABITING BORROWED PLACES [IBP]

PAINTING NATURES

 

A sample of  contemporary moments on classic arts whirr of wings.

By inhabiting borrowed places I constitute a ’country in between’ and build a bridge over time and place, as a classic-contemporary sample over now and then.

Some naturescenes are borrowed from painters through time, primarly from the Golden Age. Other naturescenes however are captured and borrowed directly from nature itself. The landscapes are rediscovered, interpreted and modificated conserving the genuine light and atmosphere.

The new room of nature created in the canvas evoke a classic, romantic yearn for physically entering the painting [the landscape] and in this same way leave the painting and hereby enter nature.

In the big scale canvas, the architectual room changes and builds a decidedly new nature often easier to enter

The borrowed landscapes are inhabited by figures whom more than concrete subjects, can be seen as personifications of given frames of mind. Their presence is simulated in the landscape as a contrast, cut out from a world of two dimensions and placed in a living spacious nature.

The habitants are ‘out of place’ in the nature, yet also an absolute part of the nature.

Inhabiting Borrowed Places is a collective-subjective tale in which complementary existential situations are portrayed in frozen moments, whilst the universal psyche is painted as nature in the nature.
