Lars Ibsen

As an architect, I have always been interested in design and shaping.
In my work with ceramics, I am free to experiment with colors, surfaces, aesthetics and expression, and it is a pleasure every time I succeed in creating the result that I imagined.

To experiment is to tread new paths and find a way.

-Lars Ibsen


Lars Kalmar Kastanje

In his paintings, Lars Kastanje experiments with acrylic paints and Japanese paper, where he has developed his very own special technique.

From the beginning, Lars Kastanje has decided on the motif and the choice of color, which must describe exactly the narrative and feeling that will complete his work. His images are influenced by surroundings and fictional phenomena, where the expression is imagination and humor and the intention is to evoke emotions, as well as inspiration and contemplation.

4.9-24.10 Art exhibition - 'At the end of the rainbow - The rainbow painters in Løkken'

Experience the old Løkken painters at Børglum Kloster this autumn in the exhibition

'At the end of the rainbow - The rainbow painters in Løkken'

 The art exhibition with Løkkenmalerne at Børglum Kloster is made in collaboration with Løkken Museum and the exhibition can be experienced in the period 4.9-24.10.

The Rainbow

The artists' association ‘Regnbuen’ (the Rainbow), was formed by Chr. Valentinussen, Erik Larsen and Lars Nielsen in 1938. In 1938, the art dealer P. Krogh Geneser bought the disused lifeboat station on Sdr. Strandvej and inaugurated it as an exhibition building with a painted rainbow on the building, with exhibitions by these previously mentioned Regnbuemalere (Rainbow Painters).

At the end of 1938-42, this association expanded with a considerable number of artists. However, the development they set in motion lost its momentum two years after its inception, due to the German occupation. As a result, the Løkken exhibition ‘The Rainbow’ only had a short-lived golden age.

“One is tempted to draw parallels to the natural phenomenon that the rainbow is named after - that is, the fleeting refraction of light in the water after a rainstorm. One can only just manage to enjoy the color spectrum of the sky before it is gone again. One of those kinds of sensory experiences that must be enjoyed to the fullest, while it is happening. ”

The pictures can only support the memory of the people who made up the artists' colony, in Løkken.

The rainbow painters are represented at this exhibition with the following artists:

Ane Brøgger.     Tjek Jerne.      Erik Larsen.     Lars Nielsen.      Anders Norre.         Chr. Valentinussen.
