The artist Ib-h (Iris Bendt-Hedal) makes outstanding paintings – see her website here!
The motives in Ib-h’s paintings often remind me of a small planet, where something mystical – sometimes scary – happened. But it is not too obvious what exactly is going on. There are some elements indicating that humans are/or have been there, while the animals are in the foreground and play a more important role. The colours and shapes are interesting – especially the mirroring of the motive!
“Hvid pige” / “White girl”
In this painting I used lots of white and lighter colours, which is in contrast to many of my other works. It would be interesting for me to know, how you experience this painting? I think the usage of lots of white makes it easier to see the charcoal lines, which thereby become more important in this painting…and perhaps the light colours underpin the personality of this girl…what do you think?
