Oil painting by Osmund Hansen
Oil painting on canvas by Osmund Hansen. Signed by the artist and dated 1973.
Osmund Hansen (1908-1995) was a Danish artist working predominantly with bright colours to produce bold geometric shapes. He was a self-taught painter, balancing his burgeoning artistic career with a separate career in the energy industry - in turn earning him his contemporary reputation as a part-time office worker, part-time painter.
Despite being oil paintings, his pieces often appear as a kind of collage, consisting of shapes with sharp, distinct edges layered on top of one another. His work is not restricted by a preference for a specific colour palette, but rather utilises bold, strong colours in conjunction with darker muted ones to produce the striking contrasts seen here. Weaving together separate elements and images, Hansen makes the most of the comparison between the harsh dark lines with the brighter yellow tones to produce this visually compelling and textured piece.
