1959, Århus, Danmark

"So you want to hear a story? ... You discover how wonderfull the world is when you paint it . Just look at whats all around  and you will see magic, tales and stories and you are like a traveller in your own world . I try to paint like an alchemyst, and use all kind of stuff in my paintings ... basic is oilcolor on canvas ... but then ...pulverized amber, shellac, beeswax, old toy parts, dammar, rain, sunshine, gold, old clock parts, teacups and pots, soft pastel, watercolor, the ocean, saltwater, tales and much more all blends in and becomes a part of the story  - or the story that wants to be told... the rules are that there are no rules ... the logic - that there is no logic ... I’m simply the teller of  the story and would you like a cup of tea ..." 
 - John Normand
