Painting 1


No titel, 1996*, oil on canvas, 100 x 74 cm


 Cheerful colors of summer. My mom loved the summer season - in particular the long, hot and sunny days.

*The painting was made by brush and cloths. On the reverse you will find her signature and dates - 1994 and 1996.

Painting 2


No titel, 1997, oil on canvas , 80 x 65 cm

Exhibited in Almind 1998.

This is a composition with depth. The black color against gentle sharp arches. Is it like a cathedral or a spruce forest? The interpretation is up to you.

Is it a summertime painting? We do not know

Painting 3


No titel, 1984 , oil on canvas, 68 x 50 cm. Exhibited in Almind 1998 .

Again - you have to make your own interpretation. Amoebas in water a hot day in the summer, a little boy surfing on big waves or something quite different. - But the paintings fine colors makes rest to your eyes.

For a long time the painting had the pride of being placed behind my dads desk above the book shelves.                   

Painting 4


 No titel, 1997, oil on canvas, 60 x 53 cm.

Painted with brush and cloths - thin and finely.

The linear figure challenge your imagination - A sextant ?- And maybe you need a little time to discover the fine play in the colors.

Painting 5


No titel, 1996, oil on canvas, 80 x 67,5 cm.

Exihibit in Almind 1998 and possibly Christiansfeldt in 1996. Private ownership.

In the painting you see collision between soft smooth and more tapering shapes.

A nice place in the forest or perhaps a green place among rocks. - Make your own decision! - And discover the warm and optimistic colors.


Kirsten Tang

As a young girl, my mother Kirsten Tang had a vision to become a painter. And she made it.

Through a life time of hard work, she had a prolific career, leaving behind nearly 1000 paintings and other works, before she died at the age of 93 in her home surrounded by a lot of her paintings.

  On this website 5 of her paintings will be shown every second month.

The pictures of the months are works on show in 2006. The theme of the month is:

 The paintings on the months are late works from the 1980`s and from the 1990`s. Highlights in July and August are paintings to the Highhligts for July 2006.

Thanks to everybody who pay interest in the paintings.
