Painting, installation, graphics

Artist statement

-- Åpent atelier lørdag 17. september 2022 --

My work moves between painting, installation and graphics. It focuses on the relationship and effect of space and surface. All works are subject to a hierarchical system, in which the color black is the most essen- tial element. Black is the total reduction to a zero point and at the same time it symbolizes an origin. Against the western symbolism, according to which black has negative connotations without exception, I seek a reinterpretation of this. Because as a perfect moment, black is untouchable and creates, among other things, the necessary distance between the viewer and the pictorial object.
Another element is the grid. I use its constructive character to make something invisible visible and to draw the viewer‘s attention to non-places, in form of rigid lines and intangible surfaces. The grids float as partial sections in immaterial space, on the one hand to make them recognizable as such, and on the other hand to distinguish themselves as autonomous counterparts.
In addition, the respective grid misses the actual ground of the image carrier and makes the autonomy of two levels visible: that of the spiritual and that of the material level.
My work plays with the viewer‘s perception and challenges them to actually see and to constantly re-evalua- te themselves. It showes abstract, imaginary spaces and perspective constructions of non-figurative worlds.
