Niels Corfitzen

There is no doubt that Niels Corfitzens paintings are the results of daily observations of life and the events that follow. In this process it is not unusual that there is a filtration taking place – that creates the artist’s identity in the universe that represents the diversity of visual arts. His paintings balance between an ambitious classical idiom and mantras from a modern culture, which thematizes the contemporary and civilized man's life and problems, often set in the prospect of a decaying world. With its unnatural environments and colorful galleries of personalities, the artist creates a state of mind and an underlying concern in relation to our traditional conception of the classic oil painting.

On the surface the paintings appear as small stills or scenes from a self-obsessed and ruined youth, who fight for the audience attention. A game with light and contrasts creates a concentrated presence and draw references back to the great masters such as Edward Hopper, PS Krøyer and Antonio Lopez Garcia. The paintings are created in many layers that allow the artist to have a dialogue with the work as it unfolds, which causes the process to appear naked to the observer. This method seems to create a pixelated and technological expression.
