"Contemporary art, especially painting, has turned towards a renewed interest in the craft of figurative art. Contemporary art is of course no longer modernist art, but postmodernist art, and as such a renewed interest in the lost craft of figurative painting, that modernism killed off, is only natural, though it is also a very elitist trend within otherwise selfconceited postmodernism. So we are happy to consider our selves anti-postmodernists. As contemporary anti-postmodern artists we have to reinvent old painting skills in a new form of figure painting. Only this way can we move art beyond the pseudo-intellectual amateurisms of postmodernism."

"Self-taught artist... Well in order to learn craft I studied at the Department of Conservation at the Copenhagen Royal Academy of Arts 1987-1990."
