I found him at the The Danish National Gallery in Copenhagen
"Statens Museum for KUNST"

Carl-Henning Pedersen : 1913-2007
His poetic talent and particularly his appreciation of the expressive powers of colour have inspired him to paint pictures of great dramatic beauty and originality.
As an artist he continues to proclaim the language of colour for expressing the beauty and variety of life.
He loves painting, and he paints quickly in the conviction that a work of art should be created rapidly and spontaneously to catch the emotions of the mind and translate them into painting.
Mr. Pedersen is known for his bright, expressionistic imagery. He also helped found the avant-garde art movement Cobra, an acronym for Copenhagen, Brussels and Amsterdam. Active from 1948 to 1951, it focused on semi-abstract paintings with brilliant colors, violent brushwork and distorted human figures inspired by primitive art.
In January Mr. Pedersen donated 15 oil paintings and 25 watercolors from the 1950s to the 1980s to the national gallery of Denmark, the Statens Museum for Kunst in Copenhagen, including two of his masterpieces: “Out in the Wide World” (1988) and “Red Firebird” (1972).

Ok, so I just wanted to let everyone know two things...

1. I did a horrible job at blog updates the past couple of years, but starting in August my goal is to blog/take pictures on a regular basis

2. I am going home with my good friend Jo to Sweden for the month of June and I will be putting updates up on a travel website.. I know it sounds cocky but it was the best travel website I found...
I plan on meeting her family, feeling like I "fit it" with a bunch of tall blonde Scandinavians, and hopefully check out some galleries/print shops if I find them!!

I have also started to learn Swedish...
Jag heter Maggie (you guess what it means)

"Toast to District Six"
"Still a Reality"

"Evo Morales"

"District Six"


This series addresses the importance of integration of different races, cultures, and lifestyles.
I have used the example of the Aparthied in South Africa and how it directly effected the community of District Six in Cape Town. I had the opportuniy to research female printmakers in South Africa where I met Kim Berman and Marjorie Maleka amoung others who directly influenced these prints along with my "Behind the Wire" series.
