My portrait exhibition at Frederiksborg Castle, which opened on January 12 was opened in style.The art critic Lisbeth Bonde gave a fine opening speech, Peter Bastian played small pieces of JS Bach on his bassoon. It was a pleasure to see the lifelike models walk around among the paintings of them. The exhibition hangs in the Princess wing on the ground floor to the right of the entrance. It is ideal for portraits, as the number came up to about 120 in total. The walls in different bright colors suit the paintings. I am very satisfied with the result.

My upcoming exhibition at the Art Museum in Saint-Etienne, France, will soon be ready for pickup.
These days I am finishing a large painting for the exhibition. In addition, three large drawings. I am very excited to show my works in the museum, which has the largest collection of modern art in France next to Beaubourg in Paris. A new book is published with the exhibition, including essays by the art historian Merete Sanderhoff, and writer Jens Christian Grøndahl.

I have recently debuted in a new medium, radio. In two different programs – Torben Brandt’s ” Radiofortællinger ” on P1 and Poul Pilgaard Johnsen’s ” Flaskens Ånd”, Radio 24syv. The latter can be heard on Saturday, February 4th.
