Henriette Bonde-Hansen is considered one of the leading Danish sopranos of this moment and she has been portrayed by the artist Carl Wassa Lubeck.
Carl Wassa Lübeck work fits squarely within a generation of surreal and expressionist inspired painters extending back as far as De Chirico and as forward and contemporary as Neo Rauch.
The result of joining these two fantastic personalities has been these awesome art-drawings, which transmit the magic voice and tragic performance of Henriette Bonde-Hansen and the creative world and incomparable artistic technique of Carl Wassa Lübeck. Some unique portraits to celebrate art, artists and the way to this difficult stage that allows feeling beauty.
Yareah magazine has already reviewed some works by Carl Wassa Lübeck: The Phases of Rammstein. There, we admired his fine profiles and shadows, his suggestive forms and the imaginative result of a concept full of musical but also social intentions. Now, Carl Wassa Lübeck is following this path, turning music into lines and visual shapes into that ephemera sensation that sounds can produce in our deepest being.
Carl Wassa Lübeck has created a complete world in a portrait. A world where sight, sound, touch, taste and even smell are present. Because he has captured the moment of an artist, of a great soprano, and that is simply a last truth.
**Since her debut in 1993 Henriette Bonde-Hansen has gained worldwide recognition as a perfect lyric soprano. She has had a long succession of roles on opera stages in Denmark and abroad, for example as Sophie in Der Rosenkavalier, Adina in L’elisir d’amore, Julie in Gounod’s Romeo and Juliet, and Susanna in The Marriage of Figaro. She is as much in demand in the concert halls and radio shows.
