About the work:

Solhjul i træerne
og høj, blå himmel,
gylden sne og glasklar kulde,
solens skin i diamantsplinter …
(Ole Sarvig)

An imagination about light in cold, but also winter landscapes full of expectation  have set their traces in the Christensen worklist: Winter Light, Crystal light, and now Snow Light. Here, fantasy may have fun in the double light between frozen-down passivity and all facets of life-providing light.

 

 

 

Reviews

… slagkraftige effekter …

(Politiken)

Kontrasterne, ind i mellem endda aggressionen, bliver mere fremtrædende …
