I remember the first time I went to Glyptoteket in Copenhagen. I went to see the indoor garden with palm trees and beautiful flowers, but what I remember was the statues. The humans froze in time. Alive in a way. They were the perfect croquis models. Nude in their form and perfectly shaped in their bold postures. In aw I took pictures and thought to myself I had to come back soon to draw. And I did. But I noticed it was easier for me to draw at home from the pictures I took. At home, I could escape from all the noise and be in my own world using larger paper. However, I did make a few works drawing live at Glyptoteket and these are number 1 to 5 in the exhibition. The blue works are Greek goddesses. I wondered if I was able to translate their form onto paper, and yet keep the ancient feeling. The blue color would awaken them in a way and the line would keep it modern.
It’s difficult to describe the feeling. However, I felt history among the sculptures. I was reminded of our ancestors and how religion and life once was. Not so different from today in our mission to perfect our world.Christiane
