Artist Statement

Statement

 

 

I do a lot of drawing , painting,sculpture and installations.  I also try to find new ways for the drawing and it is now  taking part more and more in my paintings and even in  installations. The drawing is very important to me  and I draw in some kind of  an “association – flow “.  Where one thing leads to another .  The drawings seems to tell you a story you recognize but then they turn into something else.  The hand is free and creates  rooms,landscapes or figures  (in series)  from the uncounsioness.  The drawings  are generating stories , ideas  for  new paintings and even  sculptures  and objects.

In my latest exhibition I drew a room  (50 squaremeters)  walls,ceiling and floor with ink and the public could feel  like they   were in the  “artpiece”,  like there was something going on everywhere.  Under your feet,behind your back and over your head.  In the room  there were also paintings . The movement is a very important ingridients  to feel  in my work like the contact  with the body and nature.

 The drawing does not have to be ink on paper or paintings.  The installation “TWIST” are made by elastics  (1200 meters ) between  walls,ceiling and floor  and the public had to really move their bodies to come  forward in the gallery..  There was also a dancer/acrobat  who performed  in the installation.  The installation “TWIST”  is based on a game from  childhood as a lot of my ideas.
