Tróndur Patursson (born 1 March 1944 in Kirkjubøur) is a Faroese painter, sculptor, glass artist and adventurer. Throughout his long and versatile career, the artist and expedition man Tróndur Patursson has managed to put himself in a solid and remarkable track on both the Faroe Islands and abroad.
The motive choice has always revolved around nature - rarely nature-giving and never natural-imitating, and over the years he has developed a special "natural calligraphy" - rhythmic and abstract form structures in the border area between figurative and non-figurative. His works, often simply called "Nature Inspiration", are abstract nature interpretations, spontaneous and informal paintings - a kind of action painting.
The viewer may be able to decode human figures or landscapes in calligraphy, and Patursson's aim is then to "make the invisible visible", ie. give us an experience of the forces and dimensions of life that we cannot immediately reach with our senses or accommodate in our sense.
