About Claus Gawin
Claus Gawin (born in 1950) is an Contemporary Artist, living and working in Copenhagen. His style is largely about color mixture and non-stop movement, and the strong way he spreads the painting all around the canvas. Superb expression and total intervention by him. Claus Gawin: "Many of my paintings are inspired by a trip to the Wadden Sea National Park in 2009 and 2015. I am fascinated by the still water and the perspective it provides between water and sky." Info: The Wadden Sea (Dutch: Waddenzee, German: Wattenmeer, Low German: Wattensee or Waddenzee, Danish: Vadehavet, West Frisian: Waadsee) is an intertidal zone in the southeastern part of the North Sea. It lies between the coast of northwestern continental Europe and the range of Frisian Islands, forming a shallow body of water with tidal flats and wetlands. It is rich in biological diversity. In 2009, the Dutch and German parts of the Wadden Sea were inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List. The Danish part in 2014. “It doesn't interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing. It doesn't interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dreams, for the adventure of being alive. ... It doesn't interest me where or what or with whom you have studied. I want to know what sustains you from the inside when all else falls away. I want to know if you can be alone with yourself, and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.” -- Oriah Mountain Dreamer from the book "The Invitation"
