My work encompasses many methods including Printmaking, Painting, Drawing and Collage.
At present I am involved with making work which gives form to that which can otherwise by definition be described as almost invisible (the nominal, metaphysical and spiritual).
ARTIST STATEMENT My motifs
My motifs include symbols, language/runic light (as energy) and spatiality.
ARTIST STATEMENT My sources
My sources are related to my Nordic heritage: a link with and to nature the duality nature and the human nature-consciousness. The creative art allows for a fundamental connection and ideas of the mystical. As an artist and by traveling I have gained a greater personal insight with regards to my own cultural ancestry and my sense of the universal. As one travels there is often a sense of an inner space, it is in part that space which I wish to use as an origin for individual pieces.
ARTIST STATEMENT My work
My work moves between the symbol/referral and abstraction. Through gesture and movement of color I can find equivalence to experience, which creates visual fields of energy rather than images.
The world is in a state of continual motion as too are we; making art is a way of creating a moment of suspension; one which can be contemplated.
The work that I produce I conceive of as an archive, or trace in time and space.
