Artist from Denmark
About the artist Inge Thøgersen
My studio is placed in In southern Aarhus ( Denmarks second biggest town) where we are artists in a work and exhibition community in beautiful green surroundings. In addition, I also have a home workshop at home nearby my studio. I am most inspired by everyday small and large experiences, by meetings with people and the impressions it leaves behind. I have been painting for the past 30 years, but I have always worked with creative expressions with different materials. When I started painting and canvases, it quickly became my preferred form of expression. Until recently, I also worked as a family therapist, and I found that art and therapy complemented each other perfectly. Now, however, I paint full-time. I am most inspired by everyday small and large experiences, by meetings with people and the impressions it leaves behind. I depend on regular walks by the water, where I am inspired by the expanses, colors, sounds and smells. When I travel, I take many photos especially of small details . I look at my photos and recall moods - and often it is interpreted and translated into a colorful painting. So far, I have made a choice that I primarily convey the positive outlook on life, hopes and opportunities. The pictures are usually large, colorful and abstract or expressive paintings - and for a change, the naïve and happy 3d dance pictures.
