In a river the color of lead




At the moment one of the things I am working on are some large drawings.
They are made up of a lot of smaller parts,
some independent drawings and some drawings spanning multiple sheets of paper.
Each part should work in it own right, but off course also as a part of the hole.
I have been trying to find a way to be free from the constrain of paper sizes,
I hate rolls!
This seems to be working for me at the moment, 
when setting out to work I don't know the final size yet,
I like only having a vague feeling of where the work is going,
there will be no death by planning.
It is an extension of the way I have been building up all the motives 
in my drawings for some time now.

After the jump you can see some of the drawings that has not found their place yet.

Two Unknown Ladies

Two Unknown Ladies and a Blooming Cactus

The two women are at Thorvaldsens Museum, 
Before today, It was probberly about 10 years since I was there last.
It is an amazing place full of is his sculptures, both casts and marbles.
Besides enjoying his work, the building by Bindesbøll is a worth a visit by itself.
The museum also houses Thorvaldsens collection of art and artifacts, 
a lot of Roman and some Egyptian works. 
And a very funky painting of hell by Jan Bruegel the Elder.
In the basement they have the theater seat that Thorvaldsens sat on in the opera when he died.
One of the place I missed wile being in New York

Talk about Artists' Books at Danmarks Kunstbibliotek





  
Kunstnerbøger på Danmarks Kunstbibliotek
Friday June 20th at 16 - 17.30

Thomas Hvid Kromann has arranged a talk at Danmarks Kunstbibliotek about Artists’ books.
First Thomas will be talking about Artists’ books. 
He was recently one of the editors of the first larger book about Danish Artists books.

Anneli Fuchs will be talking about the library collection of Artists’ books

Then Kasper Hesselbjerg, Lasse Krog Møller and I will be talking about being small publishers and our own books.

I haven't been to the library for many years, I used to work there back sometime around 1995, 
I’m looking very much forward to this. 
When working there my job was to fetch the books people requested and I would take my time, 
browsing what books was close to the books I was supposed to find, 
their collection is absolutely amazing.

If you are in Copenhagen and would like to take part of this all you have to do is send a mail to
 dkb@kunstbib.dk to confirm that you will attend. it is free
