Christian Mortensen 

A newly re-discovered artist who takes his experiences as a paramedic and his studies of the human body and transforms or interprets them into his sketches. Exploring portraiture and what lies beneath the skin has lead him through his own art to be able to further his own understanding of the human body. Christian uses his art as an attempt to ask questions revolving around what we know about life and death.

 

Some of his work depicts the unsavoury and disturbing processes that strike fear into all who grow older. But, however much we choose to ignore or deny that these processes could affect our lives, the harsh reality that at some point we must all contemplate out own mortality.
