Galleri Fredslund - Other works

In many years I have made emoticons and I have attended various courses at various artists to learn about bronze casting and carving in stone.

Below you will find a selection of my paintings - click on the individual pictures and see information about title, size in cm and price.

Bronze 
Bronze - recycled or figures

In 2018 I collected excess material from bronze casting which can occur in many different forms. I glued bronze pieces in 12 small boxes and made little stories/fairytales.

In 2015 and 2016 I attended bronze casting courses and made small figures - mostly ladies. All are sold except the one you see to the right.
Emoticons 
Small happy faces that reminds you how wonderful it is to meet a smile, and how good it is to send a smile at get one in return.

According to Victor Borge "The shortest distance between two people is a smile"
Hang emoticons up at home and be happy when you look at them. Or give them as a gift for your friend or girlfriend.

The small icons are adorned with old brooches and other things I find in the attic. Some have a knitted sweater. Each icon has its own expression, but common to them all is that they bring joy around the world.

Emoticons are made on a small canvas, 12 x 18 cm where I brush a small layer of plaster on. In the plaster I scratch the figure with a stick, which is then drawn with black coal. The body of the figure is finally painted with acrylic paint and a piece of metal or a button is attached or a piece of fabric is attached.
Stone 
In spring 2015, I was given the opportunity to learn how to carve in a stone with a grinder at a local artist who works as stone sculptor and after a couple of days I had learned so much that I was eager to start at home for myself. All the stones I had made on the course were quickly sold.

During the last year I have not worked so much with carving. But once in a while I have spent a few days cutting and I have once again built up a small stock for sale.
