Erik Nyholm: Ceramic pictures

October 15 - December 30, 2017

Erik Nyholm was autodidact and his artistic life began relatively late in life. As a young man, he taught fish farming and aquaculture operations, and for a number of years he drove with fishing tackle through a Europe where the situation in the 1930s became more and more tense towards World War II.

He started painting in his spare time and the meeting with Asger Jorn and others from the Cobra group just gave him an additional incentive to deal with art.

Recently a book has been published about Nyholm's ceramic work by art historian Troels Andersen and photographer Lars Bay. And for this reason about 80 ceramic works are displayed: Dishes, reliefs and jars, both early and late.
