POEMS

Morten Lassen defies stagnation. Unyielding in his commitment to pure abstraction, Lassen boldly transcends traditional expectations, embracing the unpredictability of his creative process. The meditative quality that pervades this collection is deliberate—a testament to the intersection of his artistic discipline and unrestrained exploration.  

A maestro of intuition, Lassen's embrace of vivid colour injects an energetic vibrancy that disrupts the assumed outcome of his process. The absence of intention breathes new life into Lassen's expression. It is where rebellious experimentation and organic form meets pure abstraction. 

The act of seeing and feeling becomes integral in shaping the tonal and structural aspects of his compositions. POEMS is a portal into Lassen’s contemplation of the ineffable—exploring the intricacies of existence beyond tangible confines. Each canvas is a verse in a larger, intuitive dialogue, where the boundaries of conventional art dissolve, and the poetry of each piece speaks volumes. He is a singular force in the realm of abstraction. 

Lassen's paintings bear the texture of their temporal evolution. At their conclusion, what feels right or wrong in the moment is finally liberated from conventional boundaries, and instead takes on a triumph of resilience.
