ABOUT THE ARTIST
"Confidently working in broad, sweeping strokes of color, Danish artist Christian Bundegaard distills his vision of the world into subtle, elemental movements of land, sea, and sky. As he paints, Bundegaard's perception of the world emerges in his abstracted scenes of landscapes and figures with a playful sensitivity and innocence. With a textural layering of rich hues, the artist thickly applies oil paints on canvas with a striking physicality, creating vivid expanses of color and form."
AGORA GALLERY, New York
"The first time I met Christian and saw his paintings, I was very surprised when he introduced himself as a landscape painter… But after a second thought and having found the "key" in my observation it became so clear and true – something that at a first glance was totally abstract is now a mountain with a blue sky or a stone wall in the Mallorquin landscape."
BARBARA BERGMAN, Rialto Living, Palma de Mallorca
"One slab, two slabs, three slabs of paint and suddenly the city of Vienna stands out in a carefully orchestrated rhythm that only Christian can create in his paintings that continue to speak to us year after year and often in surprisingly new ways."
METTE HARTLEV & MORTEN KJÆRUM, Copenhagen
"We are the proud owners of a number of Christian Bundegaard's paintings, which give us an enormous amount of pleasure every day, and are frequently admired. There's always a hint of intrigue that makes you look again and again."
