Colorful Days

I have enjoyed converting a small selection of my forest photographs into intensely dark black and white artworks. They were of course meant to express my concern about the climate and the lack of climate action.

But they have also become a new way for me to look at my earlier work. After I finished the black and white works, I felt a great need to do something with colors. Much bolder colors than what you generally see in my work, sunsets excepted.
I asked myself: how do we prevent the forests from becoming as dark and gloomy as in the black-and-white photos. How do we bring back color where it is needed, and keep the colors that are still present from fading?

And then, Black Friday came into sight, so I read in various newsletters and posts on LinkedIn... The desire to make a statement against it was strong.

And so the series "Colorful Days" was born.

Colorful Days - A call to restore and preserve the multi-coloured nature
Colorful Days

Preserving color by degrowth

It is an indictment of the greed for buying, the unbridled consumption that many people, living in so-called "developed countries," practice on a daily basis.
The works ask you and everybody who sees them the question, "What have you done to preserve my color, to restore colors where they are fading, to bring more color into the gray world that people create around them and where there is no place for nature anymore."

An appeal to you too

They call on you to boycott the increasing number of "black days" like Black Friday. Days that further fuel humanity's consumerism. They are telling you that living with nature, preserving and restoring nature, is only possible if Western man consumes significantly less. And what we consume, must be produced colorfully, that is, in harmony with nature.

Silent Light

I stand still and watch,
as the pale light of dawn
silently dispels the night.

I must admit that I have enjoyed converting a small selection of my forest photographs into intensely dark black and white artworks. They were of course meant to express my concern about the climate and the lack of climate action.

But they have also become a special way for me to look at my earlier work.
I hope you also enjoyed how the sparse light gave these artworks an intimate atmosphere.

Herewith the last one in this triptych. Early in the morning the light penetrates into the darkest corners of the world. After every night, a new day arrives…

'Silent Light' is a new artwork in my collection 'Secret Places'. It is inspired by the recent fruitless attempts by world leaders to arrive at decisive measures and concrete actions to combat the climate crisis.

Sad Song

Empty words echo over the earth
Lost in broken promises,
a sad song
whispers between the trees

Whispers

Empty words echo over the earth
Lost in broken promises,
a sad song 
whispers between the trees

I am a thoroughly positive person, there is not much that can upset me. But there is 1 issue that I am genuinely very concerned about. Not for myself, I won't live to see it.
So today a post to express that....

Drowning In Red

One last breath of the day,
glowing with autumn's melancholy,
drowns the evening in red

An intense sunset briefly colors the sky red in many shades. Soon after, it is dark, the day is over. A beautiful ode to autumn…

Endless Road

This lonely road has no beginning, no end
The voice of the rain whispers among the leaves
A dying wind announces twilight
Almost Home

A dark gray day. It is beginning to get dark and the wind is finally abating. A curtain of rain obscures the view. But I know this road, I know we're almost home.

'Endless Road' is a new photo in my collection 'The Narrow Path'.
I made this photo in the beautiful old forest near the town of Tranekær on the island of Langeland, Denmark.

Moonlit Sail

A tranquil night. On the distant horizon appears a moonlit sail, slowly driven by a light breeze.

As you probably know, Karina Mosser and I have been collaborating in various ways in the creation of new artworks.

With this artwork "Moonlit Sail" we proudly present to you a new artwork in this unique series. Karina painted on a print of one of my photographs.

The photo is printed on museum quality Hahnemühle Photo Rag and Karina painted with ink and watercolor. The size is 14"x22", ±35x56cm.

The buyer of this original painting will receive it from Karina, of course she will sign it and add a certificate of authenticity.
Limited and Open edition prints are also available. I will sign the Limited editions and they also have a certificate. You can purchase them on Saatchi Art or directly from me.
Contact one of us if you are interested.
