About Skulptor Lotte Kjoeller
My name is Lotte Kjoeller. I was born in 1966 in Denmark. I work in Copenhagen, Denmark. I am a sculptor, author, photographer, visual artist and illustrator. I write, illustrate, paint, draw, teach, make sculpture and lecture. My creativity is great, and I'm curious and creative in many areas. I'm a visual artist and almoast autodidact as a sculptor.
However, I have received instruction from Svend Wiig Hansen's student Tove Elmquist. Bjørn Nørgaards arthistic daugther from 2021.I have been a member of the Association of BKF, Fine Arts Artists for many years, as well as the DF, Danish Authors Association as an illustrator since 2002, and as poet since 2009.
I made my first sculpture in 1995. My Sculptures are always created in the dualism between the artist and the living model - the nude. They are expressions of "the dumb conversation" between the artist and her muse. The sculptures are all modeled directly after a living person, usually in strong stonecutters with chamotte or white porcelain clay, then roasted, and sometimes glazed (or glazed with icing according to their own recipe). The sculptures are quite hardy and do not break easily. I model my sculptures from the basic form of the clay, and let the clay, which is a living, organic material, even decide exactly how the result will be. It's not always, I'm glassing my sculptures, when burned laughs as clean, food and rough flat are also beautiful. I combine different materials like stone and clay, thus achieving a combination of the different types of surfaces. I like to mix a sculpture of stonecutters with a base of stone or granite. It gives a good contrast between the soft clay and the hard rock as seen below.
In 2019, I cast my first bronze sculpture which succeeded pretty well. I look forward to making more.
sculptures that attract attention. Click on the image and get to the page.
Some sculptures are glazed with plain stoneware glass like "The Bathing" above. Some are glazed with icing according to your own recipe like the picture on this side of "Gordon". This personal recipe has been used for many sculptures after 2001, where patina resembles brass or bronze. Some sculptures are modeled in porcelain clear (which I have begun in recent times) and glazed according to your own recipe with a glaze that is very similar to metal. It gives them a more glossy surface in a golden tone that most resembles brass.
I also model bust after living model. It is portraits in clay and it is a big challenge to capture a person's "character" in the clay form. It is a big job. A bust can use about 30 kg of clay so it is heavy and the task is difficult. But managed it achieve a beautiful result from what you can enjoy for many years. Below you can see a bust I've made, so you can judge yourself.
Artistic inspiration for sculptures
I have always thought that it is something special when a sculptor draws. The way he draws all the way around the object. And, as an artist, I think that shaping three-dimensional sculptures also helps me paint better and draw better as a visual artist. It helps me / force me to think three-dimensional and all around the object, and not just two-dimensional. As a visual artist you become "used to" a flat surface. The sculptures force your brain to think three-dimensional and all around the sculpture / image. "And it also helps in the paintings, which will then be more three-dimensional than they were before. And that theory has actually come to take place in my art ...
Some sculptures are inspired by the existence of our faith or of the human urge. Our ancestor's used the nude as a symbol all the time op to our day. The fat woman as a symbol of fertility and the strong man as a symbol of strength, probably never goes out of fashion. It is one of the foundations of our co-existent layer of symbols.
In fact, my sculptures have been so much noticed that I am mentioned with 5 sculptures in Ane & Annimi Holst-Schmidt's reference book "Danish Ceramics" and are mentioned in the Kunstavisen where it was written that they "... More sculptures, The "Think" in burned clay with chamotte, 47 x 21 x 17 cm, expresses a significant sense of sense combined with thought. "Quote: Lise Lotte Blom 2008 (The Think is seen below).
Do you want to exhibit my sculptures?
My sculptures are often used as a supplement to, for example, my paintings at an exhibition or an ornament. But they can easily fill an exhibition alone. My stoneware sculptures are between 15 cm and 60 cm tall and cost between 1000 and 14 000 kr. My paintings are almost always acrylic on canvas in size from 20x20 cm to 1.2x1.5 m, and the price is from approx. 1500 to 40,000 DKK by size. The lithographs cost between 800 and 4000 DKK depending on size, number and how many printed colors. Drawings cost framed approx. 3000 kr. I am framing my works with a silver frame or wooden frame, unless there is no frame for the work at all.
I exhibit in galleries, art associations and other exhibitions evenly distributed throughout the year. If you would like to exhibit my art, feel free to contact me to arrange time, place and details. For art associations, I will exhibit in return for a purchase of min. DKK 4000 per mrd. If the exhibition venue is far from Copenhagen, we must negotiate the transport. It's a good idea to be in good time when I exhibit all year, and are planning a long time. Galleries, art associations and other interested parties are welcome to contact telephone, mail or letter. My address is at the bottom of this page.
Would you like to buy a sculpture or piece of art from my website?
It is possible to buy a work of art directly from the website. Feel free to contact me via email if you would like further information in the form of a work ex. title, size and price. If it is not possible for you to come to Copenhagen personally to see and download the artpiece or the sculpture, I can send the drawing, sculpture or painting to you - if you pay the costs. You pay me beforehand and once I have received the money, I send the work of art carefully with the postal service (if possible) or another secure shipping option.

Nicolai: Jeg har udstillet i Nicolai Udstillingsbygning - og ikke kunsthal - som den er i dag. Udstillingen hed Latinamerikansk Udstilling i 1988. Nicolai var udstillingested før den blev kunsthal og der har jeg udstillet en meget stor scenedekoration på scenen i Nicolai (der ikke er en scene mere). Den var lavet af flamingo der var limet sammen i 3 lag 10 cm tyk flamingo og bemalet så det var et tredimentionelt træ og nok 1x3 m stort. Det var et livstræ som de bruger det i Latinamerika. Det fyldte hele scenen. På det var anbragt ting og sager fra de latinamerikanske ambassader som gryder, potter, figurer etc. - en ting for hvert land. Som ung var det sammen med de første kunstnere og musikere jeg kendte, de Latinamerikanske kunstnere der kom i min kære reservefar, komponist, og leder af et studie, mexicaneren Alfredo Moreleons hjem i Køge, jeg udstillede med. Det var mit allerførste rigtige kunstværk udstillet som helt ung. Jeg har ikke været meget mere end 22 år og så på et meget eftertragtet udstillingssted allerede den gang. Når Nicolai kunsthal som rigtigt er siger til folk at jeg ikke har udstillet - endnu - i kunsthallen så lyder det som om at min cv taler usandt. Det gør den ikke. Se på årstallet og se der står udstillingsbygning - ikke kunsthal. Jeg var i 2016 inde at tale med dem om problemet ved skranken i Nicolai. Man indrømmede at kunsthallen ikke havde bevaret dokumentation fra før tiden som kunsthal. Jeg kom med en plakat som dokumentation som jeg forærede dem og som de har endnu. Lederen af Nicolai Kunsthal Andreas Brøgger bekræfter hvad jeg siger og siger tak for plakaten som er i deres arkiv.
2018: Lotte Kjøller slår igennem med installationen: I begyndelsen var billedet/In the beginning was the picture. Kunsthal vARTe. vARTe Exhibitionhall, Varde, DK.
Anden installation skabt, kaldet ”I begyndelsen var billedet”: Lars er den musiker der akkompanerer komponist Alfredo Moreleons smukke lydbillede - eller anderledes musik - skabt og komponeret til og af billedkunstner Lotte Kjøllers installation "I begyndelsen var billedet" med malerierne "Stjernehimlen", "Båret" og "Michael" i samme rækkefølge på sin guitar. Alfredo Moreleon er fra Mexico og uddannet på musikkonservatoriet der. Han har boet i Danmark i mange år. Lars er autodidakt musiker med mange år på bagen og har i samarbejde med Alfredo skabt et akkompament til lydbilledet på levende guitar til Lottes Kjøllers værk der kan fremføres under ferniseringen af en udstilling. Musikken varer ca. 15 min. og skal spilles i hele udstillingens åbningstid. Se installationens tilblivelse her, Se link.
Lotte Kjøller strikes through with the installation "In the beginning was the picture": Second installation created, called "At the beginning was the picture": Lars is the musician who accompanies composer Alfredo Moreleon's beautiful soundtrack - or different music - created and composed for and by the painter Lotte Kjøller's installation "In the beginning was the picture" with the paintings "Stjernehimlen "," Worn "and" Michael "in the same order on his guitar. Alfredo Moreleon is from Mexico and educated at the music conservatory there. He has lived in Denmark for many years. Lars is an autodidactic musician with many years on the bag and in collaboration with Alfredo has created a accompaniment to the soundtrack of live guitar for Lottes Kjøller's work, which can be performed during an exhibition. The music lasts about 15 min. and is played in exhibitiontime. See installation here, See link
