Sune Christiansen art
Christiansen's motifs are colorful and often involve abstract human-like figures, created with an intuitive and playful approach to the subject matter. Despite his objection against attempting to explain the meaning of his figures, they evoke thoughts of power dynamics, religious rituals and sexual symbolism. Christiansen's art resides somewhere between the abstract and figurative, and explores a simplified, naive and liberated expression. Often based in organic motives Christiansen's work is minimalistic and seeks to find drama in quiet situations. His compositions are based on a primary and almost child-like conception of colors, creating a pictorial atmosphere diving into the colorist tradition of the 20th century.
