ABOUT


All works have their own specific meaning of course, but overall the paintings shown on this website are inspired by the bizarre shapes nature can hold in details of plants and animals as well by cultural life and objects of men. These works create an entanglement of nature and culture by reconstructing elements of reality with estrangement as a result. A celebration of all I find interesting as well as a warning for the fragility of the world we live in.


By using different ways one can apply paint I seek contrast, tension and harmony within each painting. Transparent and thick, spacious and flat, detailed and sketchy, shiny and matt, sometimes combined with embroidery. This materiality forms a rich imagery where the viewer can wonder; I would like people to use this wonder as starting point for their own story or dream.
