My Friend Brien” 1913, oil on canvas. Gift of Mr. and Mrs. John L. Crist, Jr. in memory of John L. Crist, Sr. 1966.14. Collection of The Mint Museum, Charlotte, North Carolina.

Henri painted this picture of Brien O’Malley, his friend and guide, during his first visit to the town of Achill, Ireland, in 1913. With its bold brushwork and its unflinching depiction of O’Malley’s weather-beaten features, My Friend Brien is a clear testament to Henri’s belief that a painting should be as direct and frank a representation of its subject as possible. He wrote in 1915, just two years after completing this painting: “The people I like to paint are ‘my people,’ . . . people through whom the dignity of life is manifest . . . wherever I find them . . . my impulse immediately is to tell about them through my own language—drawing and painting in color.”

As the grandchild of painter Wolmer Zier (1910 – 1990) and with numerous other artists in his family he has always been attracted to drawing and painting, and felt it natural to continue the family tradition. Although he has worked professionally as a graphic designer, he has throughout the years produced various paintings and has held exhibitions in Denmark and Ireland.

His painting style has a fresh and spontaneous feel to it. Rather than painting every detail he looks out for interesting shapes in his subjects and translates these into pure visual language. Kasper’s subjects include landscape, interior and street scenes – capturing the play of light on buildings and streets.

The artist undertakes commissions and can be contacted via his website.
