Thursday (from the series “Weekday Icons”)

Torsdag is one of six paintings in the series entitled Hverdagsikoner. Richard Mortensen has painted a picture for each of the days of the week except Sunday. An icon is a holy picture such as we know especially from the Orthodox Church. In our culture, we especially relate matters religious with Sunday, but Richard Mortensen has turned things on their head and sees everyday life as holy. The pictures are constructed from pure surfaces with bright local colours. Each individual picture is a composition in itself, but at the same time they make up an overall rhythmical sequence of colour.
