About The Artwork

"The mother of the sea suffered with the misdeeds of man on earth and as punishment gathered all the animals of prey in her fiery splendor at the bottom of the sea. When the "Blind" fisherman came down there to make amends, he straightened her hair, collected the dirt in a pile and then threw it away. At the same moment everything came to life and everything on earth was again in balance. That's roughly how a passage from the legend of the Mother of the Sea sounds, probably the most famous story among the Greenlandic myths and legends.” The Greenlandic myth is used as a source of inspiration for the work Continuum, which was created for the largest free publicly accessible outdoor exhibition in the world, namely Sculpture by the Sea, where the work won the Danish, Australian, New Zealand Friendship Association's artist award for best work of art. The sculpture is poetic with references to both life and growth as well as change and fragility and is meant to be a symbol of hope and balance

Naja Utzon Popov is a Danish/Australian sculptor, ceramicist and textile designer who is internationally oriented in her work. She studied drawing and painting in Australia before moving to the UK, where she continued her formal education at the University of Westminster. Naja Utzon Popov’s childhood years in Denmark and her time in Australia have always been an important source of inspiration for her work. Naja’s works of art reflect a modern edge derived directly from the simplicity of the natural surroundings and aesthetic sensitivity in which she has been immersed all her life. These influences find expression in her work, where she translates her encounters with nature into sculptures, ceramics, glassware and textiles. Among some of Najas major works have been a gravity-defying clay sculpture for the Rosendahl A/S corporate headquarters in Copenhagen. A monumental outdoor sculpture entitled 'Gathering', which rises from the ground like ancient columns formed from Welsh slate, was commissioned for the corporate collection of the Danish organisation, Humana as well as ceramic sculpture installations for Saks Fifth Aves art collection in both NYC and in Puerto Rico. Naja’s sculpture Continuum was selected for Sculpture by the Sea in Sydney and received the Danish, Australian, New Zealand Friendship Associations Artist Award. Currently Naja is exhibiting at the Venice Biennale showing her biggest artwork to date, Momentum. Naja works directly with clients, architects and interior designers around the world to create unique and site-specific artworks as well as rugs.
