Architecture





"Aros Art Museum"


"Aros Art Museum" is inspired by several visits to Aros Art Museum in Aarhus.
I have written two articles about exhibitions at Aros, one about Bill Viola 
"Who is Aros - who is Bill" and one about car racing and racing cars "Racing Cars - The Art Dimension..."
Quotation:
From outside it is nothing but a huge Cube.
From inside it sure reminds you of
Guggenheim in New York.
”Little Guggenheim”?















"Aarhus Theater"


"Aarhus Theater" is inspired by a great interest in as well theater plays as theater architecture.
The Aarhus Theatre (Aarhus Teater) in Aarhus is the largest provincial theatre in Denmark.
The present theatre house constructed in the late 19th century as a replacement for the old theatre, nicknamed "Svedekassen". Since Aarhus had grown to be Jutland's biggest city during the 19th century, the old theatre had become too small for the public. The new building was designed by the Danish architect Hack Kampmann (1856-1920), and the construction began on the 12th August 1898. Only two years later the Theatre was completed, and it was inaugurated on the 15th of September 1900.
The style of the building is Art Nouveau, with the national romantic emphasis on natural materials, and the interior was completed by artists Hansen-Reistrup and Hans Tegner.

"Arne Jacobsen's Tower"
Tower of Aarhus City Hall


"Arne Jacobsen's Tower" is inspired by the Aarhus City Hall Tower. The City Hall is the city hall of Aarhus, Denmark.
It was inaugurated 2 June 1941, and it was drawn by architects Arne Jacobsen and Erik Møller.
It was deemed too modern and too anti-monumental.
On the first proposal the plans did not include a tower.
Arne Jacobsen and Erik Møller meant that towers were the power symbols of church, king and nobility and did not belong on a building that was to serve democracy.
However, citizens of Aarhus protested, they wanted a building that looked like a town hall.
After heated debate, the City Council demanded a tower, and that the building should be covered with marble in order to add a more monumental character. But it was the last town hall tower that was erected in Denmark.
The tower is 60 meters tall and the tower clock face has a diameter of 7 meters.
The building is made of concrete plated with 6,000 m² of marble from Porsgrunn in Norway.

Arne Jacobsen is he who
created the Ant Chair in 1951 - it was for an extension of the Novo pharmaceutical factory.
In 1955 he created the Seven Series. This Series became one of the most popular chairs of the late 20th and early 21st centuries.

Both matched modern needs perfectly, being light, compact and easily stackable.
Two other successful chair designs, the Egg and the Swan, were created for the SAS Royal Hotel in 1957.














"Aarhus Cathedral"



"Aarhus Cathedral" is inspired by Aarhus Cathedral (Danish: Århus Domkirke), which is the main religious edifice of Aarhus, Denmark.
The cathedral is dedicated to the patron saint of sailors, St. Clemens, and located at the address Domkirkepladsen 2, 8000 Århus C, Denmark.
The church is the longest in Denmark it is 93 m long and is also the tallest church in Denmark with 96 m.
The church is large and it has sitting place for around 1200 people.
Aarhus Cathedral was built in the end of the 12th century.














"1 Cathedral Place"



"1 Cathedral Place" is inspired by the architecture of when in the past was The Danish National Bank. It is situated opposite to Aarhus Cathedral on Cathedral Place. Today it is domicile for the financial institution Nykredit in Jutland.












"1 Cathedral Square Grey"


See "1 Cathedral Place" above.














"St. Clemens Courtyard"


"St. Clemens Courtyard" is inspired by the half-timbering construction seen in relation to placement of windows etc. In shot an exceptionel architecture.
"St. Clemens Courtyard" is the office of Aarhus Cathedral. Just behind the Theater.













"Atmosphere"


"Atmosphere" is inspired by the architecture of some selected houses in the City of Haderslev.
Together the houses express the atmosphere of the city. The 2 houses to the left are from the City Square - Hallmann's Store and
"Café Faust" - and the two houses to the right are from Noerregade - North Street - number 7 and number 22. Se them below. The architectural style is called historicism, that is because historic elements - elements that do not belong to the time the house was built - have been used in the architecture. Furthermore you might sense that the buildings have a North German or Frisian touch. That's because Haderslev City was a part of Germany until 1920.

"22nd North Street"

"Café Faust"

"The Mansard House"



"The Mansard House" is inspired by the Mansard House in the Old Town in Aarhus.
The Mansard House is a Renaissance Warehouse from 1600/1650.














"The Renaissance House"


"The Renaissance House" is inspired by The Renaissance House in The Old Town in Aarhus.
The house is the front building of a merchant's property originally built in Badstuegade in Aarhus.
With its heavy oak beams and carved brackets supporting the second story, the house is an outstanding example of renaissance timber-frame buildings. The building originally had 22 bays, 10 of which are reconstructed here. The house was rebuilt in The Old Town in 1946 and houses facilities for children's activities and the school service.










"Haderslev Cathedral"


"Haderslev Cathedral" is inspired by Haderslev Cathedral in Haderslev, Jutland.
It is however quite impossible to photograph from close range.
That's why you see it from some distance with Haderslev Pond in the foreground.
The Cathedral is also called Church of Our Lady, it was built in the 13th-15th. It is red and built of bricks.
The interior is notable for its light choir, a bronze font (1485) by Peter Hansen, the altar with a Romanesque crucifix (ca. 1300), statues of Mary and John and alabaster figures of the Apostles.





 







"Christiansborg Palace Chapel"


"Christiansborg Palace Chapel" is inspired by Christiansborg Palace Chapel.
The history of Christiansborg Palace Chapel goes back to the first Christiansborg Palace, which was built by the contractor general Elias David Häusser from 1733-45. King Christian VI was keen on architecture, and he commissioned a talented young architect in the King's building service, Nicolai Eigtved, to design the palace chapel (1738–42). Eigtved seized the opportunity and designed one of the most distinguished Rococo interiors in Denmark.
In 1794 fire ravaged the palace and it was decided to demolish the ruins completely. The demolition, however, never took place.
Architect Christian Frederik Hansen, who resurrected the palace between 1803–1828, was also commissioned to rebuild the palace chapel in 1810. Work commenced in 1813, using the existing foundations and masonry as far as possible. The church and main palace were built in strict neoclassical style, with a dome construction on top of a central church interior. The palace chapel was inaugurated on Whit Sunday, May 14, 1826, to mark the 1,000 anniversary of the introduction of Christianity to Denmark.













"Grejs Church Grey"


”Grejs Church Grey” is inspired by Grejs Church in Grejs, Vejle.
At the place where Grejs Church is located there was a church since mid - 1000. This present church was opened in 1882.
Grejs Church is built of red bricks in later gothic style and was at the inauguration referred to as "The prettiest church in Denmark ".














"Sindbjerg Church"


"Sindbjerg Church" is inspired by the church in Sindbjerg, which is near Vejle.














"Hedensted Church"


"Hedensted Church" is inspired by the church in Hedensted.
Hedensted Church in the heart of Hedensted City.
The church is from year 1175 and the original granite blocks are still in use.
A recent excavation by the National Museum unveiled the remains of the original wooden church, built in 1050 - the 1150th.
The church is decorated with a series of murals, including one depicting Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.
The church pulpit and the altarpiece is from 1600.
The original church tower was built around 1475.
It was, however, demolished in 1939 and replaced by a new.
In 2002 the church was expanded with a service building on the north side.
The architectural task of combining a building from 1175 with a new one is nearly impossible.
However, a passage of glass between the old church and the new building is a great way to solve the problem.
The new building is at the same time a reopening of the abolished women's entrance.














"Oester Snede Church"


"Oester Snede Church" is inspired by the church in Oester Snede.
This is in every way a classic Danish village church.
What makes this church special is, that it was the church of a small religious group called
”The Strong JutLanders” form 1800 to the middle of 1900.
The group used a special interpretation of the Bible called ”Pontoppidans Explanations” and a special hymn book by hymn writer Kingo. Nowadays the group is absorbed by "Indre Mission", which is the hard core evangelical wing of the Church of Denmark.














"St. Michaelis Church"


St. Michaelis Church originally served the population of German immigrants brought to the garrison town. It dates from 1687. It historically served as a military serviceman’s church, and continues to perform this special function in addition to serving its parish. Its font is a scale copy of Bertel Thorvaldsen's font in Vor Frues Kirke, Copenhagen (or Copenhagen Cathedral). It has a bell carillon that rings out across town several times a day.
Fredericia is as you know a garrison town with ramparts etc. The reason why the church tower of
St. Michaelis Church is relatively low is that it for safety reasons must be lower than the ramparts. 














"Jesus Christ"


Inspired by The Jelling Stone’s Christ. The eldest picture of Christ in the North.
The Jelling Stone was raised by King Gorm's son, Harold Bluetooth in memory of his parents, Queen Thyra and King Gorm celebrating his conquest of Denmark and Norway, and his conversion of the Danes to Christianity.

Bluetooth!!???
Have we not heard this name recently.
Bluetooth!!???
Yes, Bluetooth is a wireless protocol for exchanging data - connecting people.
Named after King Harold Bluetooth, who was famous for connecting people -
his conversion of the Danes to Christianity.














"Jesus Christ Grey"


See "Jesus Christ" above.













"You Raise me up"


"You Raise me Up" is inspired by Teguh Prasetyo Heruwaluyo, Jakarta, Indonesia.
After a fruitful meeting I was informed
He visited me in Lille Fejringhus on 30 August 2004 - our goal was to inform me about all cultural highlights of Indonesia and make an Indonesian series of motifs. Teguh Prasetyo Heruwaluyo is Muslim like most Indonesian citizens. Indonesia is the country in the world with most Muslims.
However there are an important segment of Christians in Indonesia, too.
Therefore he suggested motifs based on Christian sentences like "Jesus in my heart", "You raise me up", "The true way".
"You raise me up" - Essence of Christianity?

Type A Torpedo - Citroen 1919


André-Gustave Citroën (Born February 2, 1878 and died July 3, 1935 in Paris) was a French entrepreneur of Dutch descent. He is remembered chiefly for the make of car named after him.
André-Gustave was the fifth and last child of the Dutch Jewish diamond merchant Levie Citroen and Mazra Kleinmann (of Warsaw, Poland). The Citroen family moved to Paris from Amsterdam in 1873 where the name changed to Citroën.
André was a graduate of the École Polytechnique in 1900. During World War I, he was responsible for mass production of armaments.
André Citroën started converting the ammunition factory of the Quai de Javel in Paris.
Inspired by the industrial model put into practice by Henri Ford in the US, André Citroën decided to import modern working methods in order to manufacture robust, economical cars in large numbers. His ambition was to mass produce cars (he dreamt of a thousand vehicles a day) in order to bring prices down and so to male cars more democratic.
André Citroën quickly introduced a number of innovations in employee facilities at the Javel plant, including a sick bay, a dental surgery and a crèche.
The type A, Citroën's first production car, appeared in June 1919. It was the first mass-produced car to be built in Europe and also the first low-cost car to be sold fully equipped: electric starter and lighting, bonnet, spare wheel and tyre, etc. It was the first French car with a left-hand drive. It was also the first car to be aimed specifically at the general public, designed to be driven by everybody.

1919 Ford High Body Model T Coupee - Side


The grandma in Walth Disney's Donald Duck universe has a car like this - in Lille Fejringhus all of us are Donald Duck fans.
We have a huge collection of Donald Duck booklets and all JUMBO books. We have seen all the Donald Duck cartoons.
Among my children's toy cars I found the 1919  Ford High Body Model-T Coupee as a small model.
The Ford Model T vehicle changed the thought and transportation patterns of Americans as surely as railroads had altered personal travel in the 1830s was the Ford Model T. Inexpensive and trustworthy, coupés like this 1919 model allowed travellers to go wherever and whenever they pleased.
Henry Ford's words: "I will build a car for the great multitude. It will be large enough for the family, but small enough for the individual to run and care for. It will be constructed of the best materials, by the best men to be hired, after the simplest designs that modern engineering can devise. But it will be so low in price that no man making a good salary will be unable to own one - and enjoy with his family the blessing of hours of pleasure in God's great open spaces."

Malice 8 N1 1930 - Side


I have tried to find out the type and model.
I could not.
So. I constructed my own type and model.
"Malice" is the name of the store - a Flower Store - in which I got it.
It was a steal, it was a bargin.
I never expected to find such wonderful bus as part of a made-up bowl.
I got this precious bus for the price of a made-up bowl.
8 for 8 seats.
N1 for the address of the store Nymarksvej 1.
1930 comes from Ford Model A Transit Bus 1930, which is very much alike this bus.

"Ferrari Formula 1"



Inspiration: RACING CARS - The Art Dimension. An exhibition at Aros Art Museum in Aarhus, Denmark.
A Ferrari Formula One from 2002 was exhibited.

I am like nearly every other grown up male when it comes to Racing Cars.
I have enjoyed the battle between Fernando Alonso from Spain and the renowned German Michael Schumacher this year in the Formula One World Championship.
Fernando Alonso drives a Renault F1 and he has won the recent World Championship.
Schumacher drives, as you might know, a red Ferrari.
On 21 October this year the final race took place at the Interlagos Circuit in Sao Paolo, Brazil.
The race was quite exciting.
The odds were stacked against the Ferrari star from the outset after technical problems in qualifying left him only tenth on the grid.
Michael Schumacher however was flying.
Slamming in fastest sector times and slicing his way past back markers.
But.
But.
But.
Smoke, oh no smoke.

Smoke from the engine of the Ferrari.
I was excited to see Michael Schumacher's red Ferrari at AROS Denmark on it's own steel podium.
I touched the Ferrari and knocked on it.
I was a little disappointed that it was all made of fibre.
I pushed it - it moved.
Amazing that anybody dears sit in these fragile light plastic boxes at speeds of up to 350 km per hour, that is 220 miles per hour.
In sane you might say.
However the down force ensures they do not fly.
A curious fact is: At 160 km per hour, aerodynamically generated down force is equal to the weight of the car.  In principle these Formula One monsters are capable of driving on the ceiling.











"Lotus 72"


Inspiration: RACING CARS - The Art Dimension. An exhibition at Aros Art Museum in Aarhus, Denmark. A Lotus 72.
Drivers: Jochen Rindt, Emerson Fittipaldi, Ronnie Peterson.
Emerson Fittipaldi from Sao Poulo, Brazil is a legend in Formula One Racing.
In this black Lotus 72 he won the Formula One Championship.
The name on the side of the above Lotus 72 is Ronnie Peterson.














"PEUGEOT 906 HDI FAP"



The Le Mans Winning Car 2009.
PEUGEOT 906 HDI FAP was the winning car in Le Mans 2009.
My favourite driver was Tom Kristensen from my country. At 4 o'clock in the morning I was watching TV. I saw the AUDI R 15 having troubles with suction.
Before AUDI has won due to stability during the night.
This time however the suction problems in the AUDI caused loss of speed.
The PEUGEOT 906 increased its lead lap by lap.
The PEUGEOT won.
Tom Kristensen lost. Audi lost. I lost.
A few days ago, however I felt that I won Le Man 2009 after all.
I bought this tremendous car PEUGEOT 3008. It is a quite new design.
It is a crossover. Driving properties are second to none.
I used to drive Volvo and BMW.
But this PEUGEOT 3008 outperforms anything I have ever tried before.
So, I now feel I won Le Mans after all by joining the PEUGEOT team.













"Audi R8"


Inspiration: RACING CARS - The Art Dimension. An exhibition at Aros Art Museum in Aarhus, Denmark. Here is what I saw. This is an Audi R8 Le Mans racer. Drives: Biela, Germany, Kristensen, Denmark.....
Several times Tom Kristensen from my country - Denmark won Le Mans in this Audi R8.
Tom Kristensen has won Le Mans 6 times.
Other great Le Mans winners are Derek Bell and Jacky Ickx.
Le Mans is a 24 hour race once a year.
Danes that are not present at Le Mans in France are watching TV.
24 hours.
Enthusiastically.













"NASCAR"


Inspiration: RACING CARS - The Art Dimension. An exhibition at Aros Art Museum in Aarhus, Denmark.
Nascars have differnet looks. I have designed this to be a typical Nascar.













"Sparking Plug"



The sparking plug is the ultimate prerequisite for auto racing.














"Audi R15"



This car participated in Le Mans 2009. Cooling system problems slowed it down.
The Danish driver Tom Kristensen was expected to win another victory in Le Mans.
He became the runner up.

      Sure a Kawasaki Z1 is cool, but I prefer a Harley. Don't tell the Japanese.






"Harley Davidson DYNA"



                             My dream is to have a Harley before 2019.






Wind








"Think Wind Power"


I’m a member of “Organizing for America” supporting Barack Obama’s ideas.
Every second day I receive news about his doings and whereabouts.
Barack Obama believes we have a moral, environmental, economic,
and security imperative to address our dependence on foreign oil and tackle climate changes in a serious, sustainable manner. I’m a Dane, you know. I was raised in a country where we could see a windmill in whatever direction we looked. Decades ago the windmills were used for milling grain.
Now they produce energy for multiple purposes.
The Danish wind turbine industry is the world's largest.
The global company Siemens’ Headquarters for Wind Energy has thus been placed in Brande, Denmark. I work together with Siemens Wind Power in Brande. “Think Wind Power” is inspired by Gyro Gearloose’s* Little Helper, Barack Obama’s ideas, Siemens Wind Power and myself, who are an environmentalists by conviction.

*) Gyro Gearloose is an inventor appearing in comic book stories as a friend of Donald Duck. Gyro is often assisted by his Little Helper (or just "Helper"), who is a small anthropomorphic robot with
a light bulb for a head symbolizing genius.

Flowers







"Anemone"


"Anemone" is inspired by Cicely Saunders, who founded the first hospice, St. Christophers in London.
She said: "You matter because you are you. - You matter to the last moment of your life, and we will do all we can not only to help you die peacefully, but to live until you die." and by the flora of my country.
The flower series of 12 commonly known Danish flowers is made for decoration in every single room in St. Mary Hospice in Vejle, Denmark. When a patient dies a postcard or small serigraph print with this motif
have shown to bring great consolation to the surviving relatives.

Fairy Tale Characters






"Sleep-Sheep"


Sleep-Sheep is inspired by a sheep in a Fairy Tale. I have have written a number of Fairy Tales that together forms a UNIVERS. All Fairy Tale Characters are drawn in a whimsical and off-beat style. The UNIVERSE is bound together by the bright colors used and the simple shapes. The Fairy Tale Characters are used in many different contexts, for instance in a children's clothes brand. 







"Tall-Charlie"



I wrote some whimsical and off-beat rimes.
One of these was about a giraffe called Lange Søren (in English Tall Charlie).
Metha Hansen, who had reat skills as an illustrator
designed the original Lange Søren.

"9 Bernhards"


"9 Bernhards" is inspired by creating children's clothing (Lonvig by MINYMO) on the basis of the Bernhard Fairy Tale Character. When the clothing design is finished I converts some of the decoration elements into art work. People that saw this art work called it "WARHOL".








"Funky Banana"


"Funky Banana" is inspired by creating children's clothing (Lonvig by MINYMO) on the basis of the monkey Bernhard Fairy Tale Character. When the clothing design is finished I write a Fairy Tale in order to explain how the original Bernhard in red becomes Bernhard in funky colours.
He of course ate a Funky Banana.


How Bernhard got his funky colours
By Asbjorn Lonvig
One day a wizard came to the Zoo.
He had a magic banana in funky colours.
If you eat this magic banana you’ll become organic.
Bernhard always wanted to become organic.
Bernhard ate the banana, he even ate the skin.
And the wizard said:
When you eat the funky banana you’ll have funky colours.
Bernhard said:
I always wanted to have funky colours.
Bernhard enjoyed to be organic and to have funky colours, and he said:
Now I‘m fit for kids’ clothing.
Now I’m fit for LONVIG by MINYMO.







"9 Trouts"


"9 Trouts" is inspired by fish farming in my country. The company Dantrout won the regional initiative price in 2009. And I was asked to make a motif for the celebration. Fish, water, lakes, rivers, oceans have always been some of my favorite themes.
And ad this: I found out that my grandfather Kristian Jensen was one of the founders of Dantrout.
No doubt, I was inspired. I even wrote a Fairy Tale about it.
The fairy tale is called
Oncor-Hynchus-My-Kiss - Latin for Rainbow Trout is Oncorhynchus mykiss.

Oncor-Hynchus-My-Kiss

HI, my name is Oncor-Hynchus-My-Kiss.
That’s Latin and it means Rainbow Trout.
Just call me My-Kiss.
I crossed the Atlantic Ocean from North America in 1885.
I was just an egg then.
I was hatched in Denmark and since then I was a Fish Farming Fish.

However, I have not been successful all the time.
In some periods my colours are transformed into grey nuances.
I am confused and I swim in the wrong direction.
I am depressed.
My name is Oncor-Hynchus-My-Kiss-Atrox-Grisea-Digitalis-Rubra,
which is the Latin for the Terrible Grey Rainbow Trout?
bringing about Red Figures in the accounts.
During these periods it is not fun at all to be a Rainbow Trout.
During these periods it is not fun at all to be a Fish Farmer or the processing industry.
In other periods, however, I'm successful…

…and in other periods my colours are transformed into golden nuances.
Auratus starts with the letters AU - the chemical symbol for gold.
Auratus is Latin for gold.
Fish Farmers and the processing industry consider me as a pure GOLDFISH.
Fish farmers and the people in the processing industry are sedate people
who do not use big words.
It is certainly from these periods the Danish phrase "not so bad after all” originates.
Dantrout was started by a group of visionaries Fish Farmers*.
And Dantrout has always been very closely related to fish farming.
Dantrout has been in a bit of everything.
Ups and downs.
At some point Dantrout was actually owned by Royal Greenland…

I and Dantrout now live nice and bright.
Sometimes my colors turn into beautiful Arctic blue colors and white.
White as the Arctic ice.
I got the name Oncor-Hynchus-My-Kiss- Arcticus-Azure.
I was so happy because I believe Royal Greenland is the world's best brand.
However.
I was hit by disease. Very serious illness - I was near death.
The new owners bought Dantrout for giving me a dignified death.
However, the new owner’s further explorations revealed new potentials in Dantrout.
I and Dantrout survived.

This time, the nuances are in green.
I have got the lovely name Oncor-Hynchus-My-Kiss-Ecológica.
Dantrout is building an ultra visionary fish farm not far from the Brande area,
where Dantrout was founded.
Dantrout works together with the innovative owner of Kærhede Fish Farm in Kibæk.
This new fish farm needs no river – no creek.
A little crazy, don’t you think?

A fish farm where the water is from the underground and pumped back into the underground through an ingenious system of pipes.
There is a filtering through naturally occurring coal seams.
A fish farm, which could be placed in your living room, no environmental impact at all.
A fish farm where the sludge is collected….
By burning the sludge pure phosphorus (P) is generated.
The letter P in NPK fertilizer.
A fish farm, where everything is controlled technologically.
A fish farm where the feeding is monitored on TV via cameras located in the basin bottom to ensure proper food intake to ensure our well-being.

A fish farm with 72 tanks inside a house, divided into separate units with 6 pools, where one unit can be shut down and cleaned separately.
As Oncor-Hynchus-My-Kiss-Ecológica I am helping to keep the planet clean.
I increase Dantrout's production by 50% and I help to ensure Dantrout's future commodity supply.
I am a proud Oncor-Hynchus-My-Kiss-Ecológica.
I am a proud Oncor-Hynchus-My-Kiss-Ecológica when the Minister for the Environment** in a few days passes by to visit me and to see our innovative organic project.

Sincerely,
Oncor-Hynchus-My-Kiss-Ecológica


*) I was born in Brande. My Grandfather Kristian Jensen was a prosperous Fish Farmer.
He was one of the visionaries Fish Farmers, who started Dantrout in 1939 - then it was called Dansk Andels Ørredseksport.

**) The Minister for the Environment - he is called Troels.
As a politician he is considered dull and grey.
However.
He visits me now and then.
We attend soccer matches together - we are fans of the same soccer team.
In these cases he is bubbling and colorful.
When the opponent to our soccer team scores a goal he cries out loudly “Oh Shit”, “Damn It”.......
He has promised me to arrive in his distinguished ministerial car with a driver next time he visits me.

...later
He visited me some days ago.
I was ready to photograph.
But he arrived in a little big green VW with a driver without a cap and uniform.

Dear Asbjorn Lonvig,
The Staff at ARTROM Gallery has met to view your images.
We have also visited your websites and entered immediately into your world.
We are impressed with your ability to simplify a concept into an image and concentrate it,
to incude only what is necessary. In evaluating your work for its strong graphic content, we  became aware of the size of the originals; they are all quite large and are acrylic on canvas. 
In viewing your works we discussed not only their graphic content, but discussed them as paintings, as objects unto themselves. Knowing that the images exist somewhere as objects of that dimension is far different than looking at images stored in some computer, regardless of how they were created. One can appreciate the graphic illustrative/informative quality of an image on a computer screen, but it stops there, until you know more about the image as it exists in "real life",
and this adds another dimension to the work. It also adds credibility to the commitment the artist has made to the image.
We feel that you believe in your commitment as an artist.
This is one of the aspects we look for in our GUILD Members.
When one believes in himself the message is clear.  We are also interested in your "Manifesto" below.        
"It's about the fact that the art market is predicted to grow 3,5 times because of the Internet.
It's about my decision to stake everything on the internet.
It's about concentrating my efforts on the internet when it comes to sales.
It's about my decision to make new standards and challenge art traditions by
making my drafts on a computer and exhibit the drafts.
And insist upon that a computer is nothing but a new tool.
And insist upon that using a computer is as worthy as not doing it!!!
Worthier????" 
We would like to help you accomplish these things, and welcome you to
become a member of AGG.

The jubilation feelings given
by forms and colors
of Asbjorn Lonvig...
French author Alain Joannes from Paris praises Asbjorn Lonvig's art to the skies in his new book "Comment communiquer par des images" ("How to communicate through pictures"). It is presented at Salon du Livre in Paris.005.

 

He wrote the following:
The art of the Danish painter Asbjorn Lonvig communicates at the first glance euphoria in a rough state. A so intense euphoria that the glance can not move away from the piece of his art.
Of course, the saturated colours are decisive in this very great glowing. The coloured dazzling and the feeling of pleasure which prolongs it have multiple causes. 
As adequacy between artistic creation and the constraints of communication, the art of  Asbjorn Lonvig illustrates an assumption of neurocognitives sciences: the neurons in charge of visual perception are first activated by patterns recognition, then by colors recognition, then by recognition of textures and movements recognition. In a piece of art  like "Soul hurting still ", the sensory impacts of the forms and the colors are very strong and equal.  The pleasure comes from what the eye and the brain receive from the red, the yellow, the green and blue at the same time as they recognize the squares, the rectangles, the circles, the triangles, the straight and broken lines and even  the letter “A”.
The glance thus filled by a profusion of feelings founds a generating mental state of pleasure.

After and beyond the primary emotion, in a second phase of contemplation, the spirit endeavours to confer an overall significance on the table.  It calls upon its repertory of already memorized forms.  Then, the pleasure becomes ludic.  Functioning like a rebus, the chart of an unknown territory, a coded language or a mysterious diagram, the piece of art asks to the witness:  " What am I ?"

The many possible answers are mental resonances which give to the artistic communication a richness higher than all the other ways to communicate.
This communication is intersubjective.  It organizes the meeting between the subjectivity of the artist and the subjectivity of the witness. 
The witness of the piece of art is free to refer to tropical sensory prints: association of a dominating solar yellow, sky blue, deep vegetal green.  He can also associate the table with an intimate collection of primitive art. 
He shall perhaps remember the geometrical abstractions of Kandinsky and Mondrian. Surely, the piece of art  will be kept in the long memory space into the brain with all its resonances sensory, emotional, ludic and cultural.

It is may be interesting to know that the joyfull  impact piece of art by Asbjorn Lonvig is closely related to its is canvassed artistic. High level data processing specialist then head of a software company, the painter found serenity in a pictorial creation which starts with digital drafts and finds its completion on a support – frame and fabric - entirely conceived and manufactured by the artist.

In viewing your works we discussed not only their graphic content, but discussed them as paintings, as objects unto themselves. Knowing that the images exist somewhere as objects of that dimension is far different than looking at images stored in some computer, regardless of how they were created. One can appreciate the graphic illustrative/informative quality of an image on a computer screen, but it stops there, until you know more about the image as it exists in "real life",
and this adds another dimension to the work. It also adds credibility to the commitment the artist has made to the image.
We feel that you believe in your commitment as an artist.
This is one of the aspects we look for in our GUILD Members.
When one believes in himself the message is clear.  We are also interested in your "Manifesto" below.        
"It's about the fact that the art market is predicted to grow 3,5 times because of the Internet.
It's about my decision to stake everything on the internet.
It's about concentrating my efforts on the internet when it comes to sales.
It's about my decision to make new standards and challenge art traditions by
making my drafts on a computer and exhibit the drafts.
And insist upon that a computer is nothing but a new tool.
And insist upon that using a computer is as worthy as not doing it!!!
Worthier????"

The jubilation feelings given
by forms and colors
of Asbjorn Lonvig...
French author Alain Joannes from Paris praises Asbjorn Lonvig's art to the skies in his new book "Comment communiquer par des images" ("How to communicate through pictures"). It is presented at Salon du Livre in Paris.005.

 

He wrote the following:
The art of the Danish painter Asbjorn Lonvig communicates at the first glance euphoria in a rough state. A so intense euphoria that the glance can not move away from the piece of his art.
Of course, the saturated colours are decisive in this very great glowing. The coloured dazzling and the feeling of pleasure which prolongs it have multiple causes. 
As adequacy between artistic creation and the constraints of communication, the art of  Asbjorn Lonvig illustrates an assumption of neurocognitives sciences: the neurons in charge of visual perception are first activated by patterns recognition, then by colors recognition, then by recognition of textures and movements recognition. In a piece of art  like "Soul hurting still ", the sensory impacts of the forms and the colors are very strong and equal.  The pleasure comes from what the eye and the brain receive from the red, the yellow, the green and blue at the same time as they recognize the squares, the rectangles, the circles, the triangles, the straight and broken lines and even  the letter “A”.
The glance thus filled by a profusion of feelings founds a generating mental state of pleasure.

After and beyond the primary emotion, in a second phase of contemplation, the spirit endeavours to confer an overall significance on the table.  It calls upon its repertory of already memorized forms.  Then, the pleasure becomes ludic.  Functioning like a rebus, the chart of an unknown territory, a coded language or a mysterious diagram, the piece of art asks to the witness:  " What am I ?"

The many possible answers are mental resonances which give to the artistic communication a richness higher than all the other ways to communicate.
This communication is intersubjective.  It organizes the meeting between the subjectivity of the artist and the subjectivity of the witness. 
The witness of the piece of art is free to refer to tropical sensory prints: association of a dominating solar yellow, sky blue, deep vegetal green.  He can also associate the table with an intimate collection of primitive art. 
He shall perhaps remember the geometrical abstractions of Kandinsky and Mondrian. Surely, the piece of art  will be kept in the long memory space into the brain with all its resonances sensory, emotional, ludic and cultural.

It is may be interesting to know that the joyfull  impact piece of art by Asbjorn Lonvig is closely related to its is canvassed artistic. High level data processing specialist then head of a software company, the painter found serenity in a pictorial creation which starts with digital drafts and finds its completion on a support – frame and fabric - entirely conceived and manufactured by the artist.

Dear Asbjorn Lonvig,
The Staff at ARTROM Gallery has met to view your images.
We have also visited your websites and entered immediately into your world.
We are impressed with your ability to simplify a concept into an image and concentrate it,
to incude only what is necessary. In evaluating your work for its strong graphic content, we  became aware of the size of the originals; they are all quite large and are acrylic on canvas. 
In viewing your works we discussed not only their graphic content, but discussed them as paintings, as objects unto themselves. Knowing that the images exist somewhere as objects of that dimension is far different than looking at images stored in some computer, regardless of how they were created. One can appreciate the graphic illustrative/informative quality of an image on a computer screen, but it stops there, until you know more about the image as it exists in "real life",
and this adds another dimension to the work. It also adds credibility to the commitment the artist has made to the image.
We feel that you believe in your commitment as an artist.
This is one of the aspects we look for in our GUILD Members.
When one believes in himself the message is clear.  We are also interested in your "Manifesto" below.        
"It's about the fact that the art market is predicted to grow 3,5 times because of the Internet.
It's about my decision to stake everything on the internet.
It's about concentrating my efforts on the internet when it comes to sales.
It's about my decision to make new standards and challenge art traditions by
making my drafts on a computer and exhibit the drafts.
And insist upon that a computer is nothing but a new tool.
And insist upon that using a computer is as worthy as not doing it!!!
Worthier????" 
We would like to help you accomplish these things, and welcome you to
become a member of AGG.

I am a New York based artist. I work primarily in pastels, oils & watercolor.
I loved your web designs and art that I located through absolute arts! 
Is this to be another web magazine like absolute arts? 
Is it solely your own promotion?  It is GREAT!!!!  If it is ongoing, how do I subscribe? 
You have a linking option...I'm interested in it....please see my web site:

I know of one who may be interested in your work....maybe
All the best for  wonderful holidays!
