Nina Sten-Knudsen – Galleri Faurschou

http://www.faurschou.com/artists/ninastenknudsen/view/917

Monumental landscape (2m38/3m53) by Nina Sten-Knudsen (Copenhagen, 1957). ‘Havet Flyver’ (Havet canyon?), 2008.
It looks rather classical, verging on abstraction.

Her previous painting on the site, ‘Balcony’,2005, is even larger (2m97/4m83). It reminds me of photographic digital superpositions, full of half-visible fragments.
One sees the lady looking on the balcony, observing everything that makes a city:lights, streets, houses, objects (from shops’windows?) even a bird’s-eye view of the place and some map. Fascinating multiple layers.
