Paint & Mixed Media
Inspired by nature, music and the people he meets, composer and artist Henrik Hytteballe’s visual works range from abstract compositions to partially figurative universes. Through amorphous shapes and rich pastels, he explores the clash between civilisation and culture, philosophy, myths and spirituality.
Working with both spatula and brush, Hytteballe’s acrylics are revelatory and self-reflective, drawing on contemplative discoveries and views of the world that may be elusive at first glance. Each piece serves to underscore a love of nature, of animals, and a profound respect for all living things. In viewing Hytteballe’s works, interpretations can vary from palliative and pristine to deeply immersive and confrontational. In layers, hues and form, the artist unveil the many gifts nature has bestowed upon us. Using movement and juxtaposition, he establishes meaning and a new perspective on the chaotic world in which we often find ourselves.
