Visual artist Charlotte Tønder
My life with art!
The constant of my life is art! For the last 25 years, my passion and focal point has been art. I am inspired by everything I encounter and experience on my way. Therefore, my images are often very different, because my mind is absolutely crucial to how the final subject will be.
My clients are often surprised at how different my subjects can be, but I can't even imagine being confined to just one genre or form. I clearly see it as a strength in my creativity that I can move from the completely abstract to the more figurative and use the entire color palette.
My pictures only take shape when I'm sitting at the canvas. It is typical of my workflow that I have a basic idea – a "basic motif"- from which I work. Next, I wipe out the "basic motif". The blurred motif makes a random mark, which I explore until I find my way into the subject.
I have taken painting courses both San Francisco where I have previously lived for several years as well as courses in Copenhagen. My artistic oasis for the last 5 years is my gallery in Rørholmsgade where I act as both an artist and a galleri for several sculptors and period artists. In my gallery I have exhibited blah. Lars Braun and Camilla Blachmann. I am part of Kunstnergadens Rørholmsgade which is an artist community with 15 other artists.
