ABOUT THE ARTIST
STEEN BERG HANSEN / SERIOUS FUN
It’s not hard to find Steen Berg Hansen’s inner child. He can play with the best of them, imaginatively and colorfully. Indeed, he’s in contact with the authentic child inside of him, one of the prerequisites of art. Let’s just say itout loud: Art is serious fun. If art leaves out that element of playfulness, it quickly dies a dull death. And if fun is bereft of a little seriousness, it quickly becomes nonsense, which in turn is uninteresting.
Colors play an important role in Steen Berg Hansen’s paintings. Cascades of color. Musical color. Emotional color. Spontaneous and effervescent. You can’t help but feel good at the sight of his paintings. They are saturated with joiede vivre.
They laugh at solemnity, of which there is far too much in the Danish daily life.
