William Heinesen - the artist (paperbook)

He draws, cuts, glues, and paints with both pastels and oils. His untamed imagination invites the viewer on a journey through the mythic darkness of trolls and nixes to landscapes adorned with birds, plants and all kinds of creatures, all in exuberant and vivacious movement. The motifs run from the small houses clustered together in his childhood to the rocky mosaic of the headlands; they are drawn from the world of legends and fairy tales, from Nordic mythology, from Arcadia and the Garden of Eden. The inspiration is grounded in a sense for nature, in irony and a subtle jocularity, in a solid, playful and unbound joie de vivre and an embracing sense for the ornamental and decorative.

This untiring artist is active into old age. His production is profuse. Decorative ornamentation and patterns in strong formal style and colours are put together in innumerable paper cut vignettes, which he generously gives away. His fertile and unique imagery is a rich gift to us all.

The book is in faroese and english.
