Cecilie Neumann Hansen

E

lements of nature are brought into the gallery space by Danish artist Cecilie Neumann Hansen who seeks out remote areas with no human presence, allowing the unconscious to guide her as she attempts to mimic the landscape, creating her own interpretations of the land. Drawn to patterns and structures in vast landscapes, immense mountains and wide plains, she observes how they meld together, capturing abstract perspectives and using them to create carefully considered tonal images that vibrate with an otherworldly sense of melancholia. Alongside her photographic works she presents boxes containing natural elements such as earth,

moss and flower petals. The artist seeks to create a space for discovery of both the spiritual and earthly elements of natural phenomena as well as bringing recollections of memories to the viewer. Based in Copenhagen, Neumann Hansen studied Fine Art Photography at the Glasgow School of Art, formally having trained at Copenhagen School for Film and Photography. She has exhibited regularly since 2013 in Denmark and the UK, and last year her work was included in the Pingyao International Photography Festival in China. cecilieneumann.com cecilie_neumann@hotmail.com
