Hanne StøvringHermosa Design will host an Opening Reception for The Light of the North on Thursday, September 15 from 6 to 9 p.m.

The evening features a new exhibit by Danish artist Hanne Stovring and the launch of the 2016 design award nominated Cirque Collection by Louis Poulsen.

The artwork will be on display at Hermosa Design through October 6.


Born in 1978 in Denmark. Hanne Støvring belongs to the young generation of painters of Bornholm. The small coastal town Gudhjem on the faraway island Bornholm in the Baltic Sea has been the home of her studio. Here on the edge of Denmark, under clear sky and with the open sea to the great world, through her intense senses she experiences the scenery of the summer night where magic rule in the bluish white vibrating light, the changing weather, the intimate calmness and the nuances of colors over sea and sky. The titles of the paintings suggest that she focuses on human life and solidarity and nature moods. She tells stories of compassion and passion, caresses, awakening and dreams, hopes and miracles. Hanne’s work can be found in private collections all over the world.

In 2014 Hanne moved to New York City. She says. ’My palette has changed a bit. More strong colors have appeared in the sceneries – bright red, green, yellow and blue. Very vibrant and energetic. The city influence me – as everyone else.’

Hanne is currently showing her pieces in USA at The Danish Consulate General of New York and The Danish Mission to the United Nations in New York. In Denmark she’s exhibiting at Galleri Himmerland, Northern Jutland and Galleri Brøddegade, Bornholm.

Hanne is also working for the Danish National Gallery. She’s responsible of developing ‘AFSMK – American Friends of SMK’, an organization and a friendship scheme which aims to strengthen the ties between SMK and its American friends and audiences. AFSMK creates opportunities in Denmark and in the United States for people to broaden their understanding and deepen their ties to Danish culture by supporting and participating in the collection, exhibitions and activities of the SMK-Museum and exchange.
