Finn Pedersen was a Danish artist born in 1944 on the island of Bornhol, he died in 2014. He was a painter. At the age of twenty he came into contact with abstract art through a number of artists. He holds his first exhibition in 1965. A year later, he takes part in a group exhibition at the Court Gallery in Copenhagen. Asger Jorn, Karel Appel, Carl Henning Pedersen and a number of other COBRA artists also exhibit here. With powerful movements he applies the paint to the canvas. He uses the spatula, his fingers or lets the contents of the tube flow over the canvas in thick streams. Pedersen intertwines the colors, let them twist around each other and challenge each other. This creates new unexpected and mysterious connections. It is of the utmost importance for this artist that every color remains clear and pure. It shouldn't get messy. So there is rarely any mixing of colors. For Pedersen, every color is beautiful enough of itself. Colors must complement each other. They have to give each other new energy. Just like the individual tones in a melody where each tone plays its own important role. Pedersen's paintings are recognizable and mysterious. (wordpress).
