VisitSilkeborg

Gladkunst

Gallery and studio for colorful and nature inspired paintings and sculptures by Kirsten Glad. A gallery of joy, presence and nature's magic.

The house, once one of Silkeborg's oldest hospitals, has been given new life. Themed exhibitions in the many rooms. 

The ink paintings depict animals and adventurous creatures present among the trees and in the depths of the sea. Unknown fairy tales are being told. The oil paintings are dramatic depictions from nature - forest, sea, mountain landscapes, etc., which can also be seen as images of human nature. 

The sculptures are humorous and alternative made from natural materials, toys, textiles and much more, telling stories of freedom, imagination and joy. The expressions appeal both to children and adults.
