Posted by Aubrey Levinthal
Here I go; giving away my secrets again. I discovered the artist Eilif Amundsen a while back and just love love love everything he does. He is the evidence that supports my feeling that white can be used in abundance and if done right (which is nearly impossible) it can make the most powerful sensation of a painting. They feel like wintry memories (I believe he's from a Scandinavian country) so I thought now was the appropriate time to put them up. I have been looking to them recently too because I am doing a painting in which the season seems to be winter.
Anyway, there is absolutely nothing written about him in English online anywhere except that he was born in 1930 so for now I (and you) will have to just go on these grainy images and hope that the work reappears somewhere soon.
