The green sun only rises when everybody sleeps
"The green sun only rises when everybody sleeps" is a gesturally abstract oil painting on canvas by Danish artist Henrik Sandner. This painting features several abstract forms set against a background of brushstroke colors. The artist uses these intense brushstrokes, patterns, textures, lines, drips, colors, and movement to compose his striking paintings. To create texture and contrast, Sandner mixes sand with some of his paint, adding a three dimensional element to his paintings.
