Sys Oppenlander

Contemporary . Abstract . Art 

Sys Oppenlander is a Danish born artist who has exhibited in the United States and Europe since 2007. Her work strikes a balance between chaos and order, where her creative force manifests as color explosions on canvas. The bright, vivid streaks she creates are reminiscent of a lush tropical landscape and a passionate life.  Oppenlander never plans or sketches prior to beginning a painting, saying her painterly process is intuitive and a ongoing dialog with the painting.   She likes this spontaneous approach to painting the same way she lives her life - an expedition of sorts that is free from the confines of the conscious mind. 

Oppenlander worked for many years as an instructor of movement and music in Europe and the US. Her experiences from that time are clear in the playful and colorful paintings that reek of deeps and movement. “Large, painterly, abstract color images covers the canvas.

From 2005 onward she has attended numerous workshops with renowned international artists, where she studied abstract painting and mixed media. For the past decade she has produced large-format acrylic paintings on canvas.
