Lise Blomberg (1971) lives and works in Copenhagen and graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2002. A characteristic feature of Blomberg's paintings is a distinctive idiom coloured by a feminine feeling of dream, nature and body. Although for inspiration she draws on her longings and ideals as well as on flowers and birds, there is much more at stake than ‘pink poetry’. Blomberg's art works are full of ambiguity and contradictions.
The same is true of Blomberg’s picturesque universe in which landscapes are a fundamental part. These landscapes, which balance between neatly drawn details and geometrical shapes close to abstraction, also include architecture, human beings, birds and crossbreeds. In her recent works Blomberg presents us for a palette, which is both saturated and contrasting. The accentuated brush strokes are now boldly placed on the canvas in broad geometric fields without graduations giving the works a distinctly graphical expression. Typical for Blomberg the viewer is repeatedly placed as voyeur, lurking behind spruce bushes in a suspended atmosphere, which is poetic yet tense and unredeemed.
