Announcements

Som tilrejsende blev jeg først fascineret af denne uendelige himmel over det åbne danske landskab med de vide horisonter. Snart tårner sydende skyformationer sig op, andre gange er det monokrome rolige skystriber. Det er disse billeder under evig forandring, der bliver holdt fast undervejs: i hukommelsen, på skitseblokken eller med kameraet. I atelieret bliver indtrykkene overført til for det meste store men i andre tilfælde også bittesmå lærreder. I denne proces forsøger jeg umiddelbart at give udtryk for bestemte situationer og de dermed forbundne følelser så tæt på naturen som muligt ved samtidigt at overdrive og dramatisere, at forandre farverne for at opnå en anden virkning og endda ved at forenkle motiverne i grove træk for at opnå et mere direkte indtryk gennem reducering. Jeg er også meget fascineret af at iagttage, hvordan bølger forløber og brydes, hvordan lyset spejler sig og hvordan skyformationer opbygges og opløses.
Faktisk gælder samme opdagelseslyst ved stilleben (nature morte). Hvordan reflekteres lyset på et blåt emaljekrus, hvordan æder rusten sig ind i metallet eller hvordan skaller emaljelaget af? Når lommerne tømmes efter lange strejftog på stranden, gælder det ligeledes om at opdage, hvordan overfladen af en flintsten skinner, eller hvordan strukturen på en granitblok forløber. Også den enkle dokumentation af nedfalden frugt fra et gammelt pæretræ eller en knækket blomst, samlet op ved tur igennem haven, kan være inspirerende.
Det er kontrasten, der stimulerer og påvirker mine sanser: på den ene side himlens og havets mægtige og omskiftelige makrokosmos og på den anden side den huslige mikrokosmos med sine fortrolige hverdagsting.

Hej Dirk
Tak for din interesse i min familie. Ligesom dig har jeg rødder i Tyskland. Min familie blev tvunget til at forlade Frankrig i det 17. århundrede på grund af Huguenotforfølgelsen og vi modtog asyl i Tyskland. Johann Peter Laux, min store, store, store bedstefar blev født i Hesse-Nassau i 1726 og emigreret til de britiske kolonier i 1748.
Bedste Wishes Min ven,
Dennis

Greetings Dirk,
Many thanks for your favorite and generous comment regarding "There But For Fortune". Although the image depicts a grim reality, I must never forget that the lives of those lost souls who reside in that filthy building have equal value as the fortunate ones who deny their existence.
Best Always,
Dennis

Hello Dirk,
So good to hear from you. A new Dark Age has befallen America; it came fast and unexpected by most of us. We are dealing with the best we can and I remain hopeful that we, as we have overcome other trials in our history, will overcome this trial as well.
Many thanks for the favorite and comment.
Best Regards,
Dennis

Hi Dirk, thanks! Yes, I lived in HH-St. Georg, and I still like it a lot, allthough it's changing, it still has a lot of colour and not stylish corners and many nice and engaged people.
Best! Ava

Hilsner Dirk,
Det er så godt at høre fra you.Thank for din interesse i "Bucks County, PA". Broen er vigtigt for mig, fordi det er en del af min familie historie. Det er navn er Loux Covered Bridge. Loux er en af flere stavemåder for mit efternavn. En kort afstand fra broen er hjemsted og gården af min store, store, store, oldefar Johan Peter Laux. Ejendommen er ikke i familien længere, men den oprindelige hjem stadig står efter 260 år.
Bedste ønsker,
Dennis

Hello Dirk,
I've come to admire your work, especially the seascapes. The sea by nature is a realm of potent fury. Your work presents a sea of patient ease and in viewing I feel a sense of tranquil repose. Your paintings remind my so much of my own coastal New England.
Best Regards,
Dennis

Yes, we both love the Baltic don't we! It is a really special sea, quite unlike the Indian and Atlantic I am accustomed to in SA. Quite different, and with a beauty of its own.
