Morten Lasse is a Danish artist who has exhibited his abstract expressionistic artworks in England, Scandinavia, Germany and Australia since 1995. He painted his first big painting as a 10-year-old where he began to paint nonstop.
Morten Lassen describes his artworks in the following way; ”My work is abstract and expressionistic, which mean that I don´t use sketches or another form of preparatory work before starting a painting. My paintings evolve while I´m painting where I work very spontaneously and intuitively.” Morten Lassen works in series of multiple canvases where he ads layer after layer of different colours and textures. He describes his process; ”Often times, the work changes dramatically during the process of adding layers. It takes four to six months to finish a group of paintings and in that period of time big changes in colour occur. It is these changes that build the painting and it is thanks to this evolvement that the artworks come out the way they do. I can´t skip the development process.”
Lassen´s expressionistic artworks have a timeless aesthetic about them. The strong and shiny red colours, the heavy brown and blue colours together with the delicate pink symbolize nature. The many edges and lines symbolize existential frames. The contrast between edges, lines and colours bring both strenght and sensitivity to Lassen´s artworks.
