Publisher's description: After receiving his doctorate in geology, Per Kirkeby (born 1938) turned his attention to visual art. His experiences during various expeditions to the far north are reflected in his artistic work. Polar breezes and the gentle lapping of waves seem to permeate his paintings, drawings, watercolors and prints as well as his sculptures, stage designs, films, structures and literary works. This volume explores the range of Kirkeby's thought and creative output: the subtle color palette of his painting; the structural design of his brick buildings; the scrutiny of his vision, which is discernible in his sculptures and prints. His universal expressiveness radiates the fascination that is characteristic of explorers.
