Marie Louise Kold works with copper, bronze and brass, and imbues the metals with an emotional charge that turns them into art.
She has worked with metal since the mid-1990’s and has developed a technique of her own, which has its roots in the tradition of copper printing. The metals are engraved and etched, but not used to print with – it is the metal itself that becomes the actual art object. The cuprous metals are brought to life by patination with acids and the art that results not only changes depending on angle and light, but also because of touch and time. The art created by Marie Louise Kold is a dynamic mixture of fantasy, passion, and colours mutated by light. The art is alive, ever changing and vibrant in its many emotions.
Marie Louise Kold has made a name for herself both in her native Scandinavia and internationally. Her works are in private collections all over the world.
Marie Louise’s art has been publicly shown in Scandinavia, The United States, Greece and Malta, to name a few places. She has exhibited extensively and had solo exhibitions in, among many others, Spazju Kreattiv in Valletta, Malta’s National Centre for Creativity; Jäger & Jansson Galleri in Lund, Sweden; Studio 28 in Montmartre, Paris, France; Illums Bolighus on Strøget, Copenhagen, Denmark and Nordic Council of Ministers’ Gallery in Copenhagen, a gallery which exhibits contemporary Nordic art of the highest class.
Talks by the artist about her art and her entrepreneurship (with creativity and without compromise) have inspired countless people in both Scandinavia and in Malta. Marie Louise has given talks at universities, corporations and both public and private events.
Marie Louise Kold was born in 1974 in Århus, Denmark. She shares life and inspiration with her partner Ġorġ, and works in Malmö in southern Sweden and in Malta.
