Lose oneself in visual fascination

Paintings by Karin Nikolajsen

I am a Danish painter. I have been painting since early ’90s with painting as main activity since 2022.

I love energizing moments where one gets lost in visual fascination driven by curiosity or beauty.
For me painting is a way to capture and prolong these moments.
I like the subtle subjectiveness of a painting created by countless brushstrokes, color, and motive decisions.

Jeg er en dansk maler. Jeg har malet siden starten af 90’erne med maleri som hovedaktivitet siden 2022.

Jeg elsker energigivende øjeblikke, hvor man fortaber sig i visuel fascination drevet af nysgerrighed eller skønhed.
For mig er maleri en måde at fange og forlænge disse øjeblikke på.
Jeg kan godt lide den subtile subjektivitet i et maleri skabt af utallige penselstrøg, farve og motivbeslutninger.
