SOL (SUN) – a commission for The Hospice Djursland in Rønde, Denmark.
This commission was made for a very special place. People come here to die or to say goodbye to their loved ones. This is a place where you do not want to push certain artistic ideas, but instead let the viewer have a moment of meditative being or absorption into a beautiful moment.
As a contrast to the many straight lines and squares of the architecture (by C.F. Møller Architects) I chose the circle as a geometric counterpoint, a dot/full stop, a glowing sun.
The sun vibrates with life, energy and power. “SOL” should be something to nourish and warmth you. If you go up close to it the piece invites you to dwell in the variation of details and texture made from the plants burnt into the silver and glass.
