This work is one of four adventurous winter artworks named 'Light and Dark - Life and Death'.
The concept is restricted to one color and one material. The color white is painted on a 6 mm transparent plexiglass plate and the daylight plays a major part in the concept. Its changing impact constantly activates the artworks opposites: light and darkness, life and death.
The experience is like a frosty winter morning: cold and beautiful with an atmospheric touch of adventure.
Mette Grøngaard, b. 1980, artist and designer graduated from the Kolding School of Design in 2008.
Black ink, paint stains, precise lines and dots forms Grøngaard's art. Where she draws references from classical drawing and uses Japanese calligraphy. Mette's work contain a great precision while fast and playful brush strokes creates a powerful and vivid expression – it is in this field that Mette’s sensitive works are made.
"When I create my work, I work with two states of mind: the intuitive and the conscious. One can have a tangible idea of what it is you want to create, but it is in the intuitive state of mind that the unforeseen and the power of the work is created. I think an art piece is exciting when both expressions are present.”
