Martin Bodilsen Kaldahl

Denmark b. 1954

‘The inspiration for my works springs from a serial work-process where the visual expression gradually crystallizes through a long series of experiments. Ultimately, the combinations of form, ornament and image will appear simple and easy to decode, while remaining open to a variety of possible interpretations of content.’

Martin Bodilsen Kaldahl was educated at the Royal College of Art in London. Over the years he has worked with a number of different spatial themes that frequently re-occur in his formal vocabulary. These include the rhytmic and ornamental possibilities of, and around, the knot; the logic of natural, genetically based form meeting constructed and virtual form and intuitive spatial form.

His works are represented in several public and private collections including the Victoria and Albert Museum, London; The Danish Museum of Art & Design, Copenhagen; The National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design, Oslo and Musée des Arts Decoratifs, Paris.
