Morten Lassen’s latest body of work, LIMBO, explores the dichotomy between the digital and organic worlds; the ways they are inextricably linked and how this has altered our bodies and minds.

'My work is abstract and expressive, which means that I don't use sketches or other kinds of preparatory work before starting on a painting. My paintings develop as I am painting, and I work very spontaneously and intuitively.' - Morten Lassen

Morten Lassen is a Danish abstract painter, based in Copenhagen, who has exhibited extensively in the UK, Scandinavia, Germany and Australia. He works in series on several canvases at a time, building up layers of oil paint in subtle grids of variegated texture and colour. 

'Often the work changes dramatically during the process of layering. It takes four to six months to finalize a group of paintings and during that time the work undergoes big colour changes. It is these change that build the painting, and it is only because of the journey that the works end where they end. I can't skip the journey.' 

Lassen's work has achieved a wide following. In 2011 the Wall Street Journal - in an article on contemporary Fine Art investment - hailed him as an artist 'to watch'. He has paintings in many public and coroporate collections including Danske Advokater; the Ministry of the Interior and Health; IBO, Herlev; Den Danske Bank, Haderslev and Ålborg Universitet.
