SINE HJORT

“Reaching for the sky with the Northern lights” 

In my artwork I explore the connection between humans, animals and nature. Growing up in Denmark I spent my free time in the forest pretending to be a magical creature at one with the environment. My images comes to me like dreams and my stories take me to an old Nordic village where humans respect and embrace life and all creatures, whether real or in our minds. 
 
Educated at Copenhagen Art school and the Danish Design School. I came to New York in 1986 and became the creative force behind an all women’s music project called Maria Excommunikata, writing and performing alternative rock music. 
Worked for seven years cutting paper for pop artist James Rizzi in Soho New York.
Exhibits in the US and in Denmark have works permanently at the Flat iron Gallery in Peekskill and live and work in Croton-on-Hudson New York.
