Christian Thomsen 1993

Lives in Amsterdam. Works in Amsterdam.

CHRISTIAN THOMSEN (DK) is Amsterdam based artist graduated from Royal Academy of Art. His work – paintings, installations and sculptures – envelop the reciprocity of creation and destruction. These themes are set out in fairy-tale / game-like atmosphere where each actions has it’s own consequence. His dialectic works envision this cause and effect, the paintings mirrors and sculptures becoming characters in a tale-like world where knights and dragons take stage. The work includes images and elements from a variety of sources that interest him, ranging from norse mythology to art history to pop-culture, thus blurring the boundaries between a plurality of genres and expectations.This conscious ambiguity reveals the obscure personal aspect to Thomsen's work, as well as how it relates to the world at large, connecting several layers of meaning, time and history to each other.
