Twilight, impermanence and death runs as an undercurrent in the works of the exhibition, all describing different landscapes, places or states of mind.

Curatered by Anne Skole Overgaard

ELSEBETH NORRIE: EVENING FIELDS

Watercolor, 30 x 40 cm, 2005

Elsebeth Norrie's landscape paintings are extremely detailed and at the same time strangely unreal. Each blade of grass is painted with incredibly precise brush strokes. The faded dandelions, she painted as a reminder of impermanence, in the midst of the green spring. The painting "Evening Fields" shows the long shadows at the end of day and has been inspiring the title of the exhibition.

ELSEBETH NORRIE: AFTER THE FLOWERING

Watercolor, 40 x 30 cm, 2015

CAMILLA RASBORG: SEDIMENT #8

Residual water from watercolor on paper, 39 x 36 cm, 2016

Camilla Rasborg works with discarded objects and materials, and traces of their impermanence. A withered flower from last summer has become a beautiful, poetic work, like the muddy sediments in the glass of water, used for rinsing the watercolor brush. These objects evoke an echoe of abandon, of impermanence and of freedom. Freedom because they no longer have value to others.

CAMILLA RASBORG: THE FLOWER OF LAST SUMMER

ANNE SKOLE OVERGAARD: HOUSE

Drypoint, 20 x 40 cm, 2016

Anne Skole Overgaard describes a landscape from Northern Italy in a series of drypoint engravings. The images shows a field of corn sprouts - and the withered corn stalks after the harvest, which may remind of impermanence. A farmhouse, which has also seen better days, is represented down to each crumbled brick. The beauty of the sun-drenched Italian landscape has a darker atmosphere in these intaglio prints.

SONJA LILLEBÆK CHRISTENSEN: CARRIER OF THE DEAD FOR THE REALM OF DEATH

Watercolor, 46 x 54 cm, 2016

Sonja Lillebæk Christensen paints an everyday situation, reminiscent of the transition to the realm of death. In her gouache two men are going for a walk with a small black poodle. They pass over a footbridge and are about to disappear from sight, just the crows and the trees will be left behind. The everyday scene contains a subtle symbolism, where the bridge becomes the passage to the realm of death and the crows are left sitting as messengers from the other side.

METTE JUUL: TAMARAS MOTHER

Inkjet print, 36 x 26 cm, 2016

METTE JUUL: TAMARAS MOTHER

Inkjet print, 26 x 36 cm, 2016

Mette Juul catches a glimpse of the lives of others with her camera, so you both become curious and seized by the strange atmosphere in the photographs. A lady is digging late at night with a spade. She is planting the bulbs that she just recieved from her sister who just came to visit from the countryside. It is one of the few plants that remaining from their deceased parents' house. In Mette Juul's photographs you sense that something special is going on.
