BUNDEGAARD
"Confidently working in broad, sweeping strokes of color, Danish artist Christian Bundegaard distills his vision of the world into subtle, elemental movements of land, sea, and sky. As he paints, Bundegaard's perception of the world emerges in his abstracted scenes of landscapes and figures with a playful sensitivity and innocence. With a textural layering of rich hues, the artist thickly applies oil paints on canvas with a striking physicality, creating vivid expanses of color and form."
AGORA GALLERY, New York


"Ihr Bild hat mich sofort angesprungen und gepackt."
EVA S., München
"Nu hänger bilden här hemma och jag slutar aldrig förundras över hur mycket kraft och utstrålning den har i sig."
GUNILLA ORANDER, Stockholm
Born 1961 in Aarhus, Denmark, Christian Bundegaard studied architecture and philosophy. He has worked as a diplomat, in radio broadcasting, journalism and publishing, and is the author of several books. Currently he divides his time between studios in Brussels and Sóller on Mallorca.
"I like spaces. In particular, the space between the world and the world as we see it. Close to nature, to the landscape; the meeting of sea and land. Quiet, beauty, view. And some disturbance in the spaces in between."
MARGRETHE VESTAGER, Brussels

"The first time I met Christian and saw his paintings, I was very surprised when he introduced himself as a landscape painter… But after a second thought and having found the "key" in my observation it became so clear and true – something that at a first glance was totally abstract is now a mountain with a blue sky or a stone wall in the Mallorquin landscape."
BARBARA BERGMAN, Rialto Living, Palma de Mallorca
"One slab, two slabs, three slabs of paint and suddenly the city of Vienna stands out in a carefully orchestrated rhythm that only Christian can create in his paintings that continue to speak to us year after year and often in surprisingly new ways."
