HENRIK HYTTEBALLE

H

enrik Hytteballe’s abstract compositions are inspired by a love of nature, music and the people he meets.

Working in acrylic, Hytteballe’s technique sees him painting with both spatula and brush to create deeply layered and textured works, form and colour coming together to offer new perspectives on the world. At times, partially figurative universes appear; caves, mountainsides and marine blue seas, as well as animals and forms from nature emerging from abstract shapes.

Through his paintings Hytteballe is exploring the clash between civilization and culture, philosophy, myths and spirituality. He is creating a self-reflective universe, drawing on contemplative discoveries and views of the world that may be elusive at first glance. Alongside painting, Hytteballe is a composer and musician, creating mediative music that plays on a combination of ambient soundscapes and articulate piano. info@henrikhytteballe.com henrikhytteballe.com
