The works of Danish artist Christiane Spangsberg are reminiscent of Henri Matisse’s ‘Blue Nude’, and Pablo Picasso’s line drawings. In them she renders the human form in a way that is both simple, and elegant.
Spangsberg works by feel, painting without removing her brush from the paper. Whilst these fluid lines technically illustrate very little about the subject, the dynamic shapes they form often say much more. Best known for her monochrome works, Spangsberg works most frequently with a particular blue paint that she discovered in an art store three years ago—its color has become synonymous with the work of the young Copenhagen-based artist.
