Birkemose in retrospective

I just had the opportunity to watch the exhibition 'Jeg er ikke færdig endnu...' (I am not finished yet...) with works in a retrospective of Jens Birkemose. I just finished a review of the show, that can be seen at the Museum Jorn in Silkeborg in the period February 23-May 26. I will not here and now give a detailed description of what the audience can expect from the exhibition. I just want to suggest that it is not least a vital commitment that characterizes Birkemose's work of life - and that on several levels.

News from the studio

I have been quite improvisational in the colour attitude in the watercolour/oil pastel that appears below. The starting point is still a stroll around the landscape of the lakes in my neighbourhood. The weather had been rather springy, which is rather remarkable for the time of the season, and it has caused me to use my expressive freedom to give the colours a slightly different expression, than how they appear at the lakes.

"With this fantastic exhibition at the National Museum of Art, Sonja Ferlov Mancoba is once lifted into the sphere, of which she belongs: as one of our greatest sculptors. We recognize her most famous works. We see the masks and helmets sculptures, she created in the last decades"

Five stars from my good colleague at Jyllands-Posten, Tom Jørgensen, to the special exhibition with works of Sonja Ferlov Mancoba at the danish national gallery. I made a review some years ago connected to a show at the Carl-Henning Pedersen & Else Alfelts Museum near Herning, but I am rather sure, that there will be more attention to the exhibition at the National Museum of Art than in Herning back in 2012. The exhibition can be seen until May 5.
