JUNKYARD – INTERVIEW
Steen Larsen is a Danish realistic painter and photographer using the road and steets as locations for his artwork. Steen Larsen is one of what is by now a small group of artists with a mimetic approach to their work – meaning they keep as close to reality as possible – and precision in both detail and totality is quite crucial. Conseptuel his work is modern landscapes circles around the tracks man leaves in nature. While driving and traveling in US and Europe he mounts a camera at the windshield on his car and shoots thousands of photos, which later in his studio works as sketches for his oil paintings. His photo-based paintings are narrative like a road movie on canvas.
