Artist statement

-- Åpent atelier lørdag 23.september 2023 --

I am an artist working with painting, charcoal, found materials, sound and installation, to create sublime and haunting imaginings of the natural world. My semi-abstract compositions are built up slowly, gradually, layer by layer, creating a sense of glowing light in expansive spaces. I work with nature but subtly alter it; shifting colours, distorting sounds and misplacing objects to hint at the otherworldly.
