Kissing The Clouds

Morning glow
The sun kisses the clouds
Blinded by the eye

A beautiful autumn morning. The sun appears on the horizon, its warm light kisses the clouds above the fields in Kobberø, Thy region, North Jutland, Denmark.

'Kissing The Clouds' is a new artwork in my collection 'Wavy Fields’.

General info on this artwork

This is a digital artwork, printed with high-quality ink on museum-quality cotton paper (Hahnemühle Photo Rag® 308gsm). The work comes in a limited edition of 10, signed and with a certificate of authenticity.

For these artworks, I start with one or more photographs made by myself. I edit it in multiple process runs and in several layers by color manipulation and adding and editing multiple digital photographic effects. I do that until a surrealistic atmosphere is created that touches me and tells the story I want to tell.

The photograph(s) I begin with has/have an impressionistic, surrealistic or abstract realist style, which is the basis for all my work.

Trees Cry

Thick clouds of black
smoke darken the sun
Eyes tear,
trees cry
The sun colors the evening
in the hues of the flames that
eat tree after tree
How high may become
the price the future
will have to pay?

I feel it as my mission to make people aware of the beauty, power and simultaneously fragility of nature. Yet at the same time, this sometimes feels like hypocrisy because I am part of the society that is causing the destruction of the habitability of the earth. Even though I do my best to live simply and keep my carbon footprint considerably smaller than "the use" of 1 earth.
At times when I feel that, I also feel an urge to create a work with a poignant message....

Birds Cry

Thick clouds of brown
smoke darken the sun
Eyes tear,
birds cry
The sun colors the evening
in the hues of the poison that
factories vomit
How high may become
the price the future
will have to pay?

First Kiss Of Light

A bright morning arrives fresh and new
Pine trees lean toward the first kiss of light
We walk together among the trees
as the sun climbs into a warm spring day

Go for a walk early in the morning and keep your eyes open for that first kiss !

Rooted

Stillness in your heart
The roots of a tree
in a November storm

In all the turmoil of the world, there are trees that remain standing perfectly straight. Offering protection and holding on no matter how severe the storm rages around them. Deeply rooted, connected to the earth and to the trees around them.
Find what connects you to the earth and to people around you, find your stillness. Cherish it and hold on to it. If something or someone doesn't bring you stillness, let go.

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…
