The temporary exhibition of the museum collection focusses on where and how the Funen painters created their works of art. Art mirrors the situation and space in which it is created, and the Funen painters used the world as their studio – from Svanninge Bakker by Faaborg to Pisa, Italy.
To many artists, the studio is a defined space that enables them to exclude all distractions and focus their attention. To others, the studio is a space without walls – a corner of the countryside or a spot in a public place. Regardless of their choice of location, the artists create work zones that affect not only the process of creation, but also the experience of intimacy conveyed by the works many years after they were painted.
