Thomas Øvlisen

Thomas Øvlisen has been heavily influenced by the landscapes around his native shores of Denmark, demarcated by horizon lines where the sea meets the sky in the distance. The evidence of time and erosion of water on rock and land has had a recurring visual presence in Øvlisen’s work, from his early abstract paintings to hand-sanded sculptural objects with a weathered patina, to recent paintings of seagulls flying towards a horizon line. Øvlisen’s work evokes a joyful curiosity and reverence for nature.
