Zonation mean ”a subdivision in geographical zones or habitats following some pre-given principles”, for instance based on differences in temperature, precipitation, salinity or radiation. For me ”Zonation painting” is about allowing the urban landscapes to take on form, subjectively edited by the artist in coal, acrylics or oil on canvas, in a mixed style which merge figurative, expressionist and abstract styles.
My work method is based on drawings made in the summer period in the town. Based on these drawings, and the memorized Copenhagen “in my mind”, I develop my expressive-figurative-abstract paintings in oil or acrylics in a studio in Lyngby in group sessions, thereby allowing the exchange of views with fellow artists and my mentor David Isenberg. I have ”coined” my technique zonation painting and I believe that it is very much inspired by Cézanne, Gauguin, Van Gogh, Matisse, Picasso, De Kooning and others but it also is inspired by geology, hydrology, architecture and psychology of organisation.
