At Cimi, we work together with upcoming and established artists to promote and draw attention to different topics.
Cimi has come together with artist Rene Holm, to contribute to the fight against plastic pollution in our nature.
The piece “It’s never too late”, illustrates a way we all can make a difference – by picking up plastic waste, that doesn’t belong in our nature.
Artists, politicians, influencers, and all of us has a incresed focus on recycling and sustainability, and the piece “it’s never too late”, taps right into that.
Cimi has since 2008 used recycled plastic in the production of cosmetic bags and makeup purses.
At that time, in 2008, it was not possible to make 100% recycled bags and we had to make due with approximately 50% sustainable products.
Today, 100% recycled plastic is an option, and in 2020 we used 516.000 plastic bottles in the production of our cosmetic bags and makeup purses.
We shouldn’t condemn plastic but instead seek ways to reuse, and not waste plastic in production.
With this cooperation we hope for more focus on reusing and for a more sustainable future for all of us.
is born in 1967 in Esbjerg and has graduated from The Academy of Fine Arts in Aarhus, Denmark in 2006. René Holm is one of Denmark’s most established contemporary artists and has been screened at fairs from Miami to Basel for years. His staccato, a strong, rhythm coupled with a profound, multi-layered sense of space make his style memorable and unmistakable.
Time and again, Holm takes up existential themes and locates them in nature. In most cases, the human being portrayed in the wilderness. The scenery often forms a slightly threatening dark forest. In doing so, he establishes a closeness to the Nordic theme of the romantic period of painting tradition, which is never to be expelled from consciousness.
With his expressive, impasto painting, Holm gives our yearning for wilderness a lasting expression. Through the powerful presence of the trees, the artist also obscures the view into the depths and thus also addresses the break in the harmonious unity of man and nature.
