About me

About


Anne-Mette Cortsen, 1976, has attended Academi of fine arts, Foundation course, Aarhus


She has an architectural master degree from the School of Architecture in Aarhus.

 

She has since 2003 been exhibited at several highly known Danish Galleries including KØN, The gender Museum in Aarhus and also the famous Grenens Museum of Art in collaboration with Gallery Rasmus.


She has won several awards and exhibited in several juried exhibitions. Most recently she was chosen for the juried KP17, KS17 and KS18.


Today she has her own studio in Skødstrup, Denmark.

 



My works, whether they are sculptures or paintings, depicts people as a part of nature. I paint and sculpt women, portrayed with a pot as their lower body and a upper body in symbiosis with plants. The works often show bare breasts and genitals, which symbolizes that we must dare to expose ourselves to each other, just as they also tell about human sexuality, the processes and transience of the body and nature.

 

To me, nature represents that we all are a part of the cycle of life. For almost everything in nature sprouts, blooms, withers and dies and I am very aware of the strong symbiosis that lies in nature and people as a subject therein.
