Thorbjørn Bechmann lives and works in Copenhagen. Bechmanns primary practice is a non-representative painting exploring questions og process, and representation in abstract languages. Central concerns are questions of communication, sensibility, and a representative language where notions of thinking are articulated through the artists hands and eye. Thus his works are proceed oriented and are layered with a multitude of shades, hues and shadows.
The experince of Bechmanns Work is an experince of transperency. It points in the direction of the luminous quality of both the painting and the world.
Thorbjørn Bechmann is educated at the Royal Danish Academi of the Arts. Besides his work as an artist, he has an extensive curatorial pracsis. He has exhibited in Denmark, Germany, Istanbul and Japan and is represented in both public and private collections, including the Danish Arts Foundation. One of his most recent exhibitions "Constant Negotiation", 2019, was rewarded by the Danish Arts Foundation for its radical investigation of a gesture-based painting.
