• K. R. H. Sonderborg uses the "non-colors" black and white almost exclusively in his painterly and graphic oeuvre.
• The characteristic style of his gestural-abstract works is based on, among others, influences from Asian calligraphy, American Abstract Expressionism and the artistic method of Automatism.
• Sonderborg took part in documenta II and III in 1959 and 1964, and in the Venice Biennale in 1964 and 1970
