Maria's Favourite Painting: Country Life

Interior Looking out on the Exterior, Strandgade 30 by Hammershøi

‘As someone who spends most of my time thinking about buildings and their interiors, I love Hammershøi’s work for its calm, controlled balance and the way it explores space and light. There’s a haunting stillness. Windows, especially internal, are a minor obsession of mine and, here, it’s not about looking onto a view, but about capturing the abstract quality of light. I understand the British comfort that comes from clutter, but my Danish roots aspire to calm.’
