Birthe Petersen (DK)

Birthe Petersen (DK) 
Mixing different techniques, such as graphics, drawing and collage, Birthe Petersen (DK) portrays women with different perspectives on life. Petersen is especially moved by the refugee situation in South-Europe and the current events in Syria, which channels a gloomy and even a stagnant atmosphere in her artworks. The paintings are however not necessarily sad or desperate, but leave the interpretation about the characters and situations freely in the viewer’s hands. Petersen uses different techniques and combines painting,drawing,old graphic prints and paper collages with a dominant black colour, which intensifies the stance-taking message in her art.
