Morten Leine has had an artist’s stay at Ryvingen Lighthouse in April. It has been an exciting and different artist’s stay.
The weather has proven itself from all sides – from the sun and great sunsets, snow and rain – and lots of wind.
The island has been trawled back and forth for motives. Morten Leine’s photographs are excerpts of or as he likes to call it – “part of the whole”.
In previous exhibitions he has worked with and presented pictures of patterns in sand (which will disappear in a matter of seconds) and here at Ryvingen he wants to find exciting motifs of patterns in stone and rock (which have been and will last for millennia). Morten will claim that he is closer to the motif than many of those who immortalize landscapes as usual. So maybe you’ll be disappointed not necessarily recognizable and see the landscape from Ryvingen? But I want you to know that his motives are from Ryvingen.
His photos usually have no title, but this time you get the titles of the photos.
Here are the titles – then the pictures come…
“The Valley”, “The Landscape”, “Guardian I”, “The King and Fool”, “Guardian II”, “The Steadfast”, “The Protector and the Whale”, “The Queen”, “The Invisible”, “The Child”, “The Bird”, “The Servant” and “The Little One”.
Nice if you stop by the Ryvingen lighthouse this summer – in July and August.
