About the artist.
Peter Nyborg is a Postwar & Contemporary painter, born in 1937 in Denmark.
Peter Nyborg has his starting point in Nordic expressionism, but his works have a greater degree of abstraction and apparent randomness similar to American action painting. His earliest works were black and white and were based on the Cobra artists' motifs, in particular Carl-Henning Pedersen, but were replaced by images whose colors are driven up in the highest register or down in the deepest. The works can be built up of strong blue, smoldering red, intense yellow or light, spring green colors, but also of black, white and brown shades. The paint layer can be quite thin or pasto cheese with incised lines. Some paintings express visions of the tranquility and beauty of the universe, but can still be characterized by a ferocity in the struggle of forms against each other that can make them appear as representations of pagan rituals.
