Curriculum Vitae (English)

Professional background

In 2001-2002 I studied the art of bronze casting and was trained by the Danish sculptor and bronze caster Ib Braun. In 2003, I attended a supplementary course at bronze caster Peter Jensen from Leif Jensen’s Bronze Foundry. In addition to this, I have attended several patination courses.

 

Artistic background

Throughout the years, I have studied at art schools (courses of durations up to 2 years) and attended courses in various art forms such as drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, glass as well as bronze casting, being the art form closest to my heart.

 

Methods

Working with bronze casting, I use the cire-perdue method, a process I am very comfortable with, as it provides possibility for reflection and absorption in the art.

 

Bronze Casting

Sculptures are made in my own workshop. Please contact me for quotations for special assignments.

 

Classes

Classes are given in glass fusing etc. to members of The Danish Association of Visual Artists (DBF) and FOF.

Yearly classes in drawing and painting on the island Fanoe.

Classes in bronze casting.

 

Lectures and ”closing time meetings”

Lectures on art as well as visits to my workshop, a studio or a gallery can be arranged.

 

When I paint,

I enjoy becoming absorbed in the art through the use of old methods of colour pigmentation and binding material direct on the canvas. This method gives a very special picture effect.

 

The same goes for my ceramic works, when working with glass, sculpturing or making reliefs in copper or iron. In copper reliefs for instance, the pictures grow from the metal during the working process, the following patination and the finishing.

 

Special assignments

4 metres relief made in stainless steel for the anniversary of the Rishøj Arena.

Agenda 21 (Environment) – Iron sculptor, 3 metres high (cyclus).

 

Scolarships

In 2003 I was invited by the Gallery of Contemporary Fine Arts (GSLU) and the Nis City Parliament in Serbia to participate in the yearly Sicevo Art Colony in Serbia. GSLU is a well-reputed museum in Serbia (the smaller equivalent of the Museum of Modern Art i Belgrade).

In 2008 I received a scholarship from the Sonar Foundation for the purpose of studies in Tuscany, Italy of Etruscan art.

 

Activities

Originator of the project ”Aabne Atelier Doere” (Open Studies) in the province of Stevns, Denmark

As a result of this, I am a permanent guest exhibitor in the township Boesdal in Stevns (Kridthuset).
