About Artist: Per Kirkeby is a household name in his native Denmark, and remains one of their best known contemporary artists. His lush, huge paintings, full of colour and movement, draw you into his mystical surroundings and abstract world. In the mid-1980s, Per Kirkeby rose to prominence alongside artists such as Georg Baselitz and Sigmar Polke, who were pioneering the rise of new painting. However Kirkeby’s work defies categories by mixing high art and popular culture with the natural scenery, keeping strong roots in the artistic and cultural traditions of Denmark. One of his conceptual themes is to examine the Danish tradition of Huts in all manner of sizes, styles and shapes. Kirkeby is inspired by ‘pop’ art, comics and fairytales, playing on the Danish stereotype of the hut in the wilderness by creating a comic-like impression of a hut, complete with kitsch motifs of trees and rising suns.
