Description

Christina Mosegaard is primarily known for her paintings of the human face, closely trimmed and most often set in deep, dark colour tones. They are contemporary faces depicted through a century-old technique. An important theme in her works – whether the motif is the human face, flowers or her most recent motif: the fold/drapery – is the Vanitas-concept of the Baroque period. She examines in her works the contrasting powers contained within that concept: the juxtaposition of ephemerality and constancy, evanescence and eternity, and it is in this atmosphere of tension that her pictures are conceived.
