Line Mortensen is a Danish Contemporary Visual Artist based in North Berwick, Scotland.
Her work is best defined as “Cross Category Visual Art” where skills, materials and techniques from a range of art forms such as architecture, design, mosaic, ceramic and glass are combined to create one-off wall pieces and sculptural objects.
The backbone in Line’s work is her imagination and Danish heritage though her skills to address, process and realise her visions is something she brings with her from her academic qualifications and previous experiences as a Landscape Architect.
In style Line’s work is best described as imaginative, meticulous, textured and semi-abstract with an urban-earthy-feel.
The quality of materials and craftsmanship in Line’s work makes this both visually fascinating and scarce but it is the similar level of attention given to the creative processes that went before which makes her work unique and sets it apart from both ancient crafts and other modern art work.
Influencing most of Line’s work is her appreciation and skillful understanding of materials and their potential as creative components. Her choice of materials is based on colours and textures and she prefers working with durable materials such as stone, glass and ceramic.
The sources of inspiration are many and varied but Line always seeks to inject elements of emotion and contemplation into her work, challenging the viewer to create their own vision on the back of hers and thereby gain a personal and long-lasting connection with the artwork.
Line has previously exhibited in UK, France and US but currently exhibits and sells most of her artwork within the UK.
