Gitte Cittrup is an educated decorator who followed her passion and dream to become an established painter. After graduating from Arts and Design school in Denmark, she works out of her own private home studio.
Gitte describes her passion for her work "The hours spent in front of the canvases are pure immersion, a constant search of chaos and aesthetic order. I paint in a multitude of moods and emotions; joy, commitment, frustration. This gives me the will to release my creative energy. Nothing is determined in advance when I start a new painting."
"I constantly challenge my painting and it has a habit of slowly developing itself into taking the shape and form it is in today"
Gitte's artworks are typically made of many layers of paint and with a rustic character. She works primarily with acrylic on canvas, as well as carbon, chalk, lacquer, black, and spray which elicit the raw effects seen in her works.
Gitte's work has been displayed at various galleries and art exhibitions around Denmark over the past 20 years.
