Interview: Tine Mynster
Luca Curci talks with Tine Mynster, winner of the ARTIST OF THE MONTH – MAY 2020.

“You can call her paintings poetic abstractions – or abstract redeeming. That’s the feeling you get when you look at the incredibly giftet painter Tine Mynster.”

Tine Mynster, (1968) is a danish self taught painter with an abstract and colorful expression. She lives in the countryside on a small island called Alrø close to Aarhus in Jultand. The water and the open sky is the fuel to her creativity – but it’s not landscape in a traditional version you can see in her paintings. The long look she has when she walks by the sea gives her the opportunity to look inside herself and in to the people she meets – so her paintings is a way to understand the mental journey we all are traveling through our lifes.

“I was born and raised in the port city of Kerteminde and have always let my eyes wander over the vast ocean – whether its a inherent or to clear my head, I can’t tell, but all I know is that it’s good for me!”

Tine Mynster educated from the Royal Academy of Music in Aarhus in 1996, and she has been a musician since she was a young woman. Nowadays she is working with both paintings and as a singer songwriter.

Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Tine Mynster – Art for me is a possibility to speak in a langue without words – and in my case its abstract painting in a colorful way. To me art can have many expressions – it can be music, painting, sculpturing… almost anything, if it’s not predictable. I prefer modern art, because I can use my own imagination, and make my own thoughts about the artwork.

LC – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
TM – I’m a self taught painter – and an educated singer songwriter. I have work as a musician for many years, and still do it together with my painting. I have always been fascinated of colors – and started painting seriously three years ago – and after posting one artwork it has been a part of my working life.

LC – Where do you find your inspiration?
TM – I get inspired of the people I meet, the conversations I have, my own life as a grownup woman with husband and two grownup sons, and the nature. I take a walk every morning to the beach and the rising sun, the ocean and the sky give me inputs to my artwork. I have been home since 11. Of March and I have been painting every single day, and Im grateful of the possibly to contemplate in my art.

LC – What is your creative process like?
TM – I’m prefer working with acrylic on canvas – and I’m working with layer on layer, so I will paint about 20-25 lays on each artwork. The final layers can be oil pastels and coal, but I always finish with varnish so the artwork can afford fingers on it. It important for me, that my artworks can manage to be in living rooms. When the tittle comes to me, I know I’m going to stop painting – and my tittles are often longs sentences, I think its because I’m a singer songwriter too.

LC – How is being an artist nowadays?
TM – I really like to be an artist – I love the opportunity to create my own days, and Im very thankful about have the possibility to get payed for both my music and my artworks.

LC – Do visitors’ suggestions enrich yourself and your art?
TM – Yes – I really like the conversations I have with my visitors in Galleri Mynster and on Instagram and Facebook. I do like to hear what other people see and feel when they are looking at my artworks – often they see figures I couldn’t see myself. I appreciate these conversations about my artworks, and I find it interesseting to register which of my artworks most prefer and why the do it.

INTERVIEW: ELSA EGON

Interviews | September 21, 2020

"Art represents for me a 'ligne de vie'. I have been painting since my 15 years: since then, artistic practice has accompanied all my experiences as a girl, woman, mother. My only safety net in the most difficult situations, today represents the way to seek beauty in the objects and materials we use every day. I often work starting from a material that already carries a story in it, because it has been found, extracted and reused. It may perhaps be recognized by the people who had it in their hands. Somehow, it tells a collective story, piecing together, to establish bonds, but at the same time fixing my experiences." Read more
