Artist, scenographer who teach with focus on flow and contemplation
I am fascinated by
Repetition, I like to repeat motif, both the same matrix with variations in colour, bagground and in junction with other motifs.
And the same line of motifs.
Plane and line- the stringens of the line and the space and antispace.
The human -
As an artist, I stay close to home. I make pictures that hold the moment.
Childhood interests me; the child’s innocence and frailty; the sense that the shortest times leave the deepest impressions. Exploring different media, formats and techniques, and using fewer strokes, lines, surfaces or elements to tell the story more efficiently is part of the process.
Central to my work is composition: the relation between motif, background, space, anti-space, and detail. I render space visible in relation to the human, the human and the space as a composition. I am interested in the body as a landscape, the human as a phenomenon and the roles that we as humans take upon ourselves.
I see the portrait as a mirror of the ground we share. I use the human as material, reducing, enlarging and diminishing it to find its final form.
Handpulled prints are made from a matrix, the matrix is handmade by the artsist. It can be copper, wood, linoleum, or stone as in lithography. It is printed on a machine that ads pressure. When handpulled by the artist, it leaves the artist to take importent artistical desissions during the process. Each work of art will be an unique work of art.
Teaching is an essential part of my practice . My focus is on finding each individual voice, in flow and immersion. I encourage my students to experiment, and loves to se serendipitys turning artworks into unique gems.
Together we look at other artists work as well, to get inspired by multiple techniques and ways to adress the work.
