High Level Meeting, 2014. Oil on linen; 75 x 114 cm

This imaginary encounter portrays Hanne’s theory that meeting in an unusual environment increases chances of success. The background is inspired by the mountains near Argentière in the French Alps while the cable cars were shot near the Mont Blanc. He changed their appearance to an abstract pattern that could refer to slalom skiing. Hanne originally conceived this painting with a completely white background but later decided to “ground” the image, adding the mountainous backdrop.
