My grandfather Richard Mortensen was an artist, my grandmother was an author and related to the Danish painter Harald Giersing. A change adding a more intuitive, free aspect to his artistic practice, letting him focus on the tension between minimalistic dark, light and dimmed colours and making those recognizable forms that both resonate with and confuse the viewer.

It was an exhibition based on music and the space between tones and the movement of a piece of music. I learned quite early to have an object, find the shape of an object and express the feeling in that shape. Whether or not he draws inspiration from his family tree, Mathias has developed a distinctive and meticulous personal style as well as a blue paint, reminiscent of Yves Klein blue, that is a thread throughout most of his work.

Threadbare Persian-style carpets covered the floor and unfinished work hung from drying lines strung from wall to wall. In other words, how to put a feeling or expression into a form. How do you, as an artist, navigate in this dynamic interplay? Can you tell about the process of making your artworks? Mathias comes from an artistic legacy; his grandfather is world famous Danish artist. It also enabled me to dive into the inspirational sources he had, such as Kandinsky and Klee.
