Morten Schelde belongs to the generation of Danish artists that have contributed to the renaissance of drawing as an artistic media in Danish contemporary art.
Just like in his drawings and paintings also in his graphic work the departing point is the world around him. Schelde combines those impressions with some surreal and imaginary elements building this way his artistic universe on the tension between those different worlds. Schelde’s monochrome palette is another characteristic trait that contributes to the sense of the surreal in the artist’s work.
The motive for Morten Schelde’s new etching is taken from a large format painting that he recently completed for the police station in Næstved.
Morten Schelde (b. 1972) is represented by Hans Alf Gallery, Copenhagen, Denmark.
