Goethe once said “The one to whom nature begins to discover its mysteries”. The work of the Danish artist Per Adolfsen can indeed pretend to be the interpret of a nature that is both mysterious and bewitching.
Through a charming easiness, he apprehends nature according to its own expression in order to reconstruct the landscapes he lives with. The vivid and saturated shades, the wavering and serpentine lines form a cohesive construction in which each natural element is spontaneously intertwined with the other, in the manner of a musical chord.
Per Adolfsen uses pencils as if they were brushes : the skies of “Yellow Field” are striped with fine colorful lines where you feel the telluric and mineral texture of pigments. The serpentine shapes adopted in “The Pine Tree and the Hills” to describe the danish countryside are wavy and undulating. The inertia and the weight of boulders and trees in “Evening Langø” shift to an air-like lightness. The rocks in “Stepping Stones” seem to become air bubbles or colored fumes.
