Henrik Sandner’s Autobiography
Henrik Sandner (1965) Danish-born painter
For more than 30 years I have been painting and exhibiting my works, mainly in Denmark but several places in Europe and USA as well. I am currently living in Copenhagen, but have also lived in Germany, Berlin and Greece, Lesvos
My approach to art has always been the abstract way, -even when I make “figurative” paintings such as my faces. That means that I am not seeking to make a naturalistically accurate depiction of my models, but rather attempting to catch the “essence” of the person. I, therefore, use colors, form, and rhythm as my instruments/tools to obtain that.
I believe that in every person you can find beauty, brutality, and fragility –and that is what I am looking for when I paint someone
He is truly an artist who knows how to capture rhythm in his paintings.
