Situated in the heart of the Gulf Stream in the North Atlantic at 62°00’N, the Faroe Islands lie northwest of Scotland and halfway between Iceland and Norway.

BeitragVerfasst am: 27.04.2007 09:25    Titel: Ruth Smith Antworten mit Zitat

Ruth Smith, born 5 April 1913 in Vágur, Suðuroy, died 26 May 1958, was a Faroese artist.

Ruth Smith's work dealt with colours more sensitively, than many of her contemporaries. She catches the Faroese light in her pictures, and the colours vibrate under brush lines. Inspired by Cézanne, her landscapes have impressionist influences. Nevertheless her work is considered as a representative of realism.

Ruth Smith´s landscape paintings can bediveded roughly in two groups. When she sat on the slopes behind the house in Nes, she could see to the North or South towards Vágur. These to coastlines, each with their distinctive house gables on the hillsides became hers, just as Edward Munch had his coastline at Åsgårdstrand south of Oslo; a line and a landscape he returned to again and again in his works. Similarly Ruth had her coastline motive, but there were two one so we canroughly place her many landscapes, studies and drawings into one group or the other - the view from the hillside towards Nes or the view towards Vágur.
She was one of the greatest colourists and finest portrait painters of the Nordic countries.

She lived and painted on the southernmost Faroese Island of Suðuroy. This is where her works were created in spite of difficult circumstances. After her death they have had a quiet existence. She communicates with us through a pictorial language that is so strong that it is still vital, just as the colours that even if they seem to be gone, are also still vibrant and present.

Into the Mystical Unreal Reality of the Faroe Islands

If you are to understand the Faroe Islands, maybe the most curious place left on earth, you would do well to start with Ove Joensen’s boat. Joensen was a sailor in Nolsoy who, in his spare time, built the Diana Victoria by hand, and for one purpose only: to row the 900 miles, via the Shetland Islands, all the way to mainland Europe. Joensen wasn’t a glory seeker; he wanted to raise money for Nolsoy so that it could afford a new town swimming pool. Nonetheless, in 1986, when he arrived in Copenhagen and leapt out of the Diana Victoria to kiss the statue of the Little Mermaid, he was greeted by a roaring throng — there are about 10,000 Faroese living in Denmark — as cameras threw the images back to the Faroes on live TV. Joensen had completed the brutal task in just 41 days.

Rockall is a small rocky islet in the North Atlantic

The remaining issue is that the status of the continental shelf rights of surrounding ocean floor is disputed with the United Kingdom by the Republic of Ireland, Denmark (for the Faroe Islands), and Iceland. These are the exclusive rights to exploit any resources on or under the ocean floor (oil, natural gas, etc.) and should not be confused with the EEZ, as continental shelf rights do not carry any privileges with regard to fisheries.

BeitragVerfasst am: 27.04.2007 09:45    Titel: William Heinesen Antworten mit Zitat

Andreas William Heinesen (Tórshavn, 15 January 1900 - 12 March 1991) is the most famous writer from the Faroe Islands. He was also a poet, a composer and a painter.

The Faroese capital Tórshavn is always the centre of Heinesen's writing. He is famous for having once called Tórshavn "the navel of the World". His writing focuses on contrasts between darkness and light, between destruction and creativity. Then following is the existential struggle of man to take sides. This is not always easy, however, and the lines between good and bad are not always clearly defined. Furthermore, Heinesen was captivated by the mysterious part of life. He called himself religious in the broadest sense of the word. His life could be described as a struggle against defeatism. One oft-quoted aphorism of his is that "life is not despair, and death shall not rule".

Jørgen-Frantz Jacobsen (November 29, 1900 - March 24, 1938) occupies a distinct place in Scandinavian literature. He is the only Faroese writer to achieve international best-seller status. This status derives from his sole novel, Barbara: Roman (1939; translated, 1948).

Faroese (føroyskt),, often also spelled Faeroese, is a West Nordic or West Scandinavian language spoken by 48,000 people in the Faroe Islands and about 12,000 Faroese in Denmark. It is one of three insular Scandinavian languages descended from the Old Norse language spoken in Scandinavia in the Viking Age, the others being Icelandic and the extinct Norn, which was thought to be mutually intelligible with Faroese.
