This trilingual art book (English-Danish-German) presents 6 beautiful and strong expressive paintings by Jørn Henrik Olsen and poems written by Debora Cornelia Sommer on the following themes: longing, wistfulness, loneliness, nightshadows, dawn and horizon.

longing - sehnsucht - længsel

  • The paintings and poems of this art book reflect on some of life’s deeper experiences. The suffered distress is attached to life’s shadow darkness. Yearning and the pain of wistfulness belong to the unfathomability of human existence, yet every so often, a crack of hope breaks through the dusky clouds of longing. The book invites us to take a halt, in order to make room for life and the soul’s profound emotional space, so our next journey under the horizon of reminiscence, follows that of the heart.
