Inspired by The mansard house 1600/1650 in The Old Town, Aarhus, Denmark.
The warehouse is a renaissance building from Jomfru Anegade in Aalborg.
It is built with a heavy timber frame and thick carved brackets. Around 1800 a mansard roof was added. This building was originally part of the merchant's property rebuilt on the Town Square of The Old Town.
The house was rebuilt in 1926 and houses the Museum shop.
I have been asked to consider smaller sizes - sizes under 1 meter.
Over the years I have made lots of paper cut-outs. I have developed a very secure technique when it comes to color fastness.
I have chosen 4 specific colors - red, yellow, green and blue, supplemented with black/white and in rare cases with grey and light blue.
I silk-screen print these colors on quality sheets before I cut.
Then the cut-outs are mounted and I have made a color fast paper collage in quality paper.
I wrote an article on "Matisse and Louisiana" about an exhibition concerning Henri Matisse's "second Life".
This encouraged me very much.
In his "second life" Matisse made numerous paper cut-outs.
