The story behind

Emil Wind shapes his motifs in clearly separated, geometric color surfaces in a concrete painting style. On closer inspection, the abstract form may turn out to be a landscape, portrait or a representation of a figure, but may also be intended solely as a pure surface and form. With predilection, Wind has processed impressions of works by artists such as Fra Angelico, Leonardo da Vinci, Picasso and Mondrian and reproduced his impressions in paper collage. In addition to painting, Wind works with photo collage, i.a. with motifs from Greenland and with sculpture, mosaic and stained glass. He has experimented with relief models of aquariums or theater scenes, and it is characteristic of him that he relates ironically to his object.
