MURALS

MURAL ART BY RIKKE DARLING

A mural is a site-specific painting painted directly on the wall. I can paint on everything from walls, ceilings, pillars, around corners, on furnitures, etc. I paint murals in private homes and have carried out assignments for both large and small companies and institutions. I can paint art on the wall as a large independent mural, but can also just paint smaller artistic details.

When I paint directly on the wall it will be a very light and airy expression. Normally I paint on a white - or just a light background colour. You must be aware that the dark walls will create some limitations in my artistic expression, since I work with light and shadow.

Some of my artistic details requires that they are painted on a horizontal surface, as I use very fluid painting techniques. Therefore, my murals will be a little different than my paintings painted on a canvas. A mural is also always less detailed and more airy in the expression. 

I paint murals in private homes, institutions and companies.

Do you want me to paint a mural? Send me a photo of your wall and write me your thoughts about the expression.

Jeg performs tasks all over the world. If the task needs to be performed far from Copenhagen, Denmark, there will be added cost for accomodation and transport.

I always give a fixed price and a rough idea-sketch, which you must approve prior to the performance.

 

If we agree, to the wall prior to the performance of the wall painting must be of a particular hue, it can be a good idea to do it before I come. So is the wall dry, and ready to be painted art on. A darker wall color, can provide a very exciting contrast to the art.

ARTIST STATEMENT

My art implies a confidence in the power of abstraction, the complex and subtle, where something un articulate in us is met with an inspiring energy. With my art, I want to move the viewer with my worldview of nature in man – and the human being in nature. It is a story that we humans are nature and part of a complicated universal pattern in which the surroundings on an energy level merge with the senses, emotions and thoughts.

We move in the science art category (SciArt), where I investigate and express something about the world. I reduce a scientific or aesthetic concept down to fewer and simpler elements to investigate a lot more closely. I use this reductionist approach in my art in both form and colour, where I examine individual components to uncover a more complex phenomenon. I seek to elicit a sensual and emotional realization in the viewer.

In my art, I take advantage of nature's flow, where large amounts of water make shapes liquid and vibrant. I use the laws of nature to create movements and crackles. Ramifications emerge as new beginnings and follow the universal pattern of a fractal stud shooting. The cells are the building blocks of nature and the foundation of all life. All living things are made up of cells. The human body is constantly changing from the first cell formation, where the stem cells are the basis of our complex organism.

I see the world holistically with a focus on the whole. Man and everything in the world is inextricably linked. I am fascinated by the patterns and connections of nature between micro- and macrocosm. The patterns in nature are repeated in a fractal geometry, where they are embedded in each other and repeated in large and small. The fractal patterns apply both to nature's simple organisms and to the more complex ones, and thus also apply to us humans.

In quantum physics, we have learned that all we thought was physical is energy. Everything in the universe consists of intangible energy, and everything radiates energy. A work of art – and also colors exude energy. But also any sense, emotion, thought or life-depletion is a result of energy. Our minds live and gain daily energy from our surroundings and with my art, I want to contribute with a sensual stimuli, an inspiring energy and perhaps even new realizations.

BIOLOGICAL PAINTINGS

Biological art lies on the boundary between art and science. I always had a fascination for biology, and when I was a teenager, I was sure I was going to be a biologist or a doctor. However, I became an artist instead, but my paintings always have a biological theme. The paintings are about micro- and macrobiology – about nature's basic patterns, the flow of water, ramifications, bud shootings, DNA, stem cells and viruses.

I work with both doctors and biologists, who help me get microscope photos to inspire my paintings. My art hangs in many medical clinics, dentists and psychologists, and I have performed great artistic decorations at the pharmaceutical company SaxoSmithKline and at four psychiatric hospitals in Denmark. I am a member of the SciArt Initiative and have exhibited my art at New York Hall and Science.
