In Between Spaces

Caroline Sillesen is a Danish artist and illustrator creating beautiful, bold prints influenced by architecture, urban spaces, Russian constructivism, city street plans, and everyday structures. Her series “In Between Spaces” caught my eye at an art fair here in Copenhagen a few months ago, and I snatched up the yellow print below for our apartment walls. Go check out her site and get one for yourself.

Her words about the inspiration for the series:

“The series emanates from a fascination of the gap, the space in between spaces. The urban space, the  space between two buildings, the streets and the way they wind. Log book studies of the labyrinthine street structure of Venice acted as a catalyst and the main theme for the creation of the works. The experience through the city’s tortuous street web, a reconstructed plan, the atmosphere from a place.”
