Item details

HOFOR Energy Company moved into a new headquarter where there was only 2 lifts/elevators for hundreds of employees. Wanting their employees to use the stairs instead, they commissioned me to do a painting on each of the 4 stairs.
The works consists of 4 paintings on canvas, and muralpaint behind the canvas, mimicing the structure of the painting. The mural parts extend to the next floor, not visible in the photos, unfortunately.

Title: "Descending Structures 1-4", Acrylic on canvas & wallpaint, each canvas 3X2meter (9 X 6ft.)
The artworks are not visible from the street

Visual artist Troels Aagaard has a MFA-degree from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Art. He is based in Copenhagen; capital of design-addicted Denmark. He has done numerous commissions in public spaces, including hospitals and hotels.
Represented by Galerie MøllerWitt in Copenhagen, the gallery scene is not unfamiliar to him.

Troels Aagaard finds inspiration in the small details of everyday life. Whether it's music or nature; what strikes him is almost always the basic structures of things. As a saxophone-solo by legendary John Coltrane or the lines in a falling leave..structure is one of the key-elements of understanding our surroundings.
