Christian Thomsen 1993

Lives in Amsterdam. Works in Amsterdam.

Thomsen has an enormous interest in alchemy, alchemical processes and the history of the occult. A subject that he deepened with his theoretical research. Thomsen became a regular visitor to the famous Ritman Collection in Amsterdam. At the same time he treats the weighty subjects with a light, playful tone, with a lot of humor and self-mockery (he regularly portrays himself as the ignorant fool at the start of a long journey). In addition, Thomsen has an insatiable love for painting, and a great interest in what painting means and can mean in 2019. Thomsen uses stories to attract the attention of the viewer. His current work stems from a desire to create a personal mythology and to express spiritual, utopian and metaphysical ideas.
