This painting by Jeppe Lauge exerts a special attraction. The format alone is already suitable to occupy the entire field of view of the beholder – it almost seems possible to go into the picture. [Nbsp]
Lye coats different layers of paint on top of each other, creating a vibrant background. On top of that, he paints a forest with realistic accuracy – numerous tribes that stretch into the air. These pictures are taken from nature, on a hike through the forest and captured for work in the studio.
But lye puts another layer or better a grid over the composition. In strict central perspective, smaller rectangles are integrated into the center. The forest, which in itself seems attractive as a place of longing, seems to be interwoven with this grid and the grid is what makes the pull into the picture particularly intensely tangible.
A fantastic picture that astonishes the viewer about nature and at the same time about human [nbsp] inventiveness.[Nbsp]
