Artist Statement
Since my studies at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts (1993-99), my production has mainly consisted of painting. One of my most fundamental aspirations within this genre has been to create a painterly language capable of mirroring some of the isolation that a human being can feel in relation to the surrounding world. This alienation is part of Man's existential predicament, I feel, and I have tried to situate it in the relation between image and beholder by purposefully throwing grit into the machinery of interpretation. With a feigned matter-of-fact attitude and, for no apparent reason, a high degree of precision, I have worked with a sign-like abstract form comprising elements of invitation (recognizability) as well as inapproachability (lack of meaning).
