Henrik Godsk Danish, b. 1975

Danish artist Henrik Godsk creates figurative works that depict structured interiors and androgynous characters aesthetically simplified by the use of geometric forms.

 

Influenced by Scandinavian simplicity and Danish design, Godsk’s paintings adhere to a self-imposed set of rules dictating the use of reduced forms, shapes and colours.  Working primarily in oil on canvas, Godsk images are reminiscent of Russian avant-garde paintings and evoke the radiance and sensuality of Paul Klee’s colour schemes.  Godsk’s work is informed by formalism, art history and folkloric art and culture.

 

Godsk's work has been exhibited internationally including in New York, Los Angeles, Berlin, Munich, Barcelona, Stockholm & Copenhagen, and has been cited in prominent public & private collections.
