Tomas Eriksson

Jeg er autodidakt naivistisk kunstner, der ønsker at min kunst skal kunne give tilskueren en god følelse i maven, som meget gerne må krydres med humor.

Måske er det min baggrund som kemiker, som spiller ind når jeg vælger at arbejde med maling. For mig er kunst som en kemisk syntese hvor jeg bygger et kompliceret og unikt molekyle ud fra simple bestanddele. Farverne er noget af det vigtigste ved mine billeder, de ska være stærke og klare. Desuden ska billederne udstråle glæde og positivitet. Inspirationen finder jeg i mine visuelle erindringer som i stor grad stammer fra Sverige. Jeg er født og opvokset i det nordligste Sverige men har også boet mange år i Skåne. For ca 10 år siden flyttede jeg til København og derfor er en del af mine billeder nu ofte også krydret med et Københavnsk præg.

English:   Born in Norrbotten, Sweden. Tomas Eriksson moved south to Landskrona at age 15 and have since stayed on in Skåne and now also in Denmark. He finds inspiration from his visual experiences which to a great degree come from his Swedish background. He took a PhD in organic chemistry in Lund and has worked within the pharmaceutical industry for 20 years until his life took an abrupt turn when his company closed down. He has been painting on and off through his whole life and have now the privilege to devote much more time for this. Some years ago he moved to Copenhagen and therefore his pictures nowadays have a very distinct Danish influence and character. “I am self-taught and I wish my art will give the viewer a good happy feeling, spiced with a little touch of humor. I believe colors are the most important thing with my paintings. Colors should be strong and clear.”

Lotte Martoft

Danish:

Jeg er en nysgerrig sjæl som nyder at arbejde med stemninger og lys i mine malerier. Specielt den skandinaviske kombination af livsglæde i mol, og mystiske trolde og glade fabel væsner inspirerer mig.

Jeg maler med en barnlig pen og med en forkærlighed for stærke farver. Det er mit ønske at varmen og livsnerven i malerierne skal lyse ud billedfladen og at de som ser mine billeder inviteres ind i motivets leg. Jeg ønsker at sprede fornøjelse og glæde til tilskuere af alle typer og alle aldre og jeg håber at mine malerier inspirere folk til at lege vider i deres egne drømme i et sælsomt univers af skæve skabninger :o)

English:  I am a curious soul who is inspired by all types of animals. I paint with a childlike pen and with a love for bright colors. It is my desire that my pictures should glow with warmth and life. I am native of Copenhagen. Perhaps because of my background as a veterinarian, I continuously focus my pictures on farm animals and their lives for better or worse. I am trying to get the animals true being pictured in the painting and hope to depicts their state of mind and vulnerability. Birds are fun to paint, especially when human like features appears in the hens’ personality. I hope that those who see my paintings become happy and if so, then I have managed to spread joy to others than only myself  : o) With happy greetings Lotte
