Art Quote of the Day

“I told someone once that I keep painting and it has become a life work. If I could not practice, I would teach. I have changed some of my materials over the years but have always found a way to continue. I paint because I have to. It is what I do.”

-Felice Sharp

Hans Henrik Petersen is a Danish modern artist/graphic arts designer who was born in Copenhagen, Denmark after the close of World War II. In 1968 he had aspired to attend the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen, but was deterred from doing so due to a hostile takeover of the prestigious art school by a Marxist student group. He worked a few years for a graphic design firm and in more calm times entered the Royal Academy for studies. Hans emigrated from Denmark in 1976 and has since worked most of his adult life in New York City and the southeastern United States. Currently, he resides with his wife Barbara in South Carolina where he paints in his studio on Lake Wylie.

“Art is not a product but a service”

“Cherished art becomes a portal through which we may enter the Universe…a glimpse, a sliver, a hint of our very own heaven. Artists are providing a personal journey to an emotional state of mind. Art is not a product but a service.” -David Rodman Johnson

“Painting for me is a process of wanting to explore something different each time I address a new canvas but it is a process of relating to what I have done before.”
