Intrigued by surfaces, rhythms and repetitions. Fascinated by encounters between elements, motion and emotions. Inspired by nature, passionately exploring light and shadow, elements of intentional serendipity, and driven by curiosity and emotions.

Torn art-paper – Love me, Love me not..

The picking of the petals on a daisy-flower is used as a superstitious help to know the outcome of a love-relationship, the torn art-paper artworks are synonymous with the situation. Opposite the quantity of a daisy flowers petals, the art-paper can be torn again and again, and with the effort, leaving the relationship even more fulfilled or fragile. The artwork, symbolizes the beautiful and fragile relations we share with each other, and the work we must do to obtain them. The repetitive torn sides of the art-paper, cast soft feather like shadows on each other. The handmade frame protects the artwork from the sides. These artworks are deliberately without any glass cover, to emphasize the fragileness in our relationships.

PAINTINGS

At a distance, the paintings often exude a soft and matte look – they seem to absorb the surrounding light. However looking closer they emanate the passion by which they are made. They show evidence of an intense proces of creation with powerfull strokes, drawn passionately across the surface.

OFFSET SURFACES

The relief works are like modern and abstract sculptural still life. The reliefs create their own intriguing space in exiting and aesthetic relations between the surfaces. Duality in complexity and simplicity. Harmony in disharmony in a minimalistic aesthetic solo.
