About Fie Norsker's work
Fie Norsker is best known for making figurative work. In essence, figurative art is art which depicts recognizable aspects of reality, or of the human figure. Although the definition appears to be rather simple, figuration still remains in its very soul more than just a depiction of reality. Indeed, the various styles in which figurative art can be achieved are infinite, thus making figurative art a ground-breaking and ever evolving category, in which Fie Norsker's work is mainly grounded. Some prominent artists known for their impact on figurative art include Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Paul Cézanne or Jean-Michel Basquiat.
Fie Norsker's work has most recently been exhibited at Marie Kirkegaard Gallery in Copenhagen (09 October 2019 until 08 November 2019) with the exhibition Tin foil. Fie Norsker's only other recorded exhibition on Artland is Rivers End, which took place at Format Artspace in Copenhagen, Denmark (15 August 2019 - 28 September 2019).

Historical Context of Denmark
As the southernmost of the Scandinavian countries, Denmark has often been very influenced by the Germanic culture of Northern Europe, which borders its southern limits. This responsiveness is often combined with the Nordic attributes of restraint and melancholy in its arts. Towards the end of the nineteenth century, and in the earlier part of the twentieth, Denmark produced a key painter of Post-Impressionism, Vilhelm Hammershøi. Acclaimed for his wistful and extremely sparse interiors, Hammershøi's reputation was founded on his ethereal depictions of light and shadow in modest, elegant interiors, most often his own residence. In the later twentieth century, Denmark was a key country in the CoBrA movement of Expressionist painting, where the naming convention was derived from the cities of the founding members - the Co standing for Copenhagen on behalf of Danish artist Asger Jorn. Founded in 1949, CoBrA's vivid colours and vibrant childlike figures became both a scandal and sensation. Other critically acclaimed modern and Danish artists include Per Kirkeby, Olafur Eliasson, Danh Vō, Sergej Jensen and Tal R.
