The subject of still live was predominately in Glenn Sorensen's work for many years. But recently especially people do appear too, yet they seem frozen in time carrying the same icon-like importance as his paintings of inanimate objects. You may say that Sorensen's paintings of still objects look like portraits while his paintings of women or men look like still lives. In his work Sorensen often exercises reduction making the works bordering the abstract. It is driven by a search for purity and essentiality. This search is reflected in his choice of subject: The objects, sceneries and persons may look easy and everyday. The urgency in which they are painted tells us that they carry a specific enigmatic importance.
