Margith Kostending, danish visual artist with studio in Djursland, DENMARK
I like to express my thoughts and feelings in pictures, primarily acrylic on canvas. The creative process provides energy and space for a meditative approach to the work. In my pictures I often use strong colors and contrasts. Details are essential elements in many of my paintings. Humor puts for me the gloomy in life and in art in perspective. My motifs often materialize through experiences in the external environment as well as in my thoughts and feelings.
My intention is not only to paint beautiful and neat pictures in the traditional sense. Among other things, I am fascinated by the human body and like to give it a grotesque expression and let it enter into new contexts and environments. Fragmented and unrealistic realism, one could call these works.
