artist statement

"I want to show our delicate emotions in contrast with everything that comes from the outside, the cynical and mechanical world that we must deal with.

My work reflects on the human sense of undefined existence often seek the path of their own identity. Isolated from his ego and influenced, veiled and absorert of the demands of society in contrast to the inner life of the mind. I work in many layers of paintings over time. Each process includes building the structure and design that will slip through the sense and the feelings that captures the emotion and the moment.

This I can describe it as a reverberation of that moment or feeling that describes the theme. I work specifically on the experience of the moment and it feels a mental standstill provides. I want the viewer to absorb the journey through layers of experiences that give a sense and reverberation one can carry on.

veiled and absorbed by the demands of society in contrast to the inner life of the mind.

@WOODCUTpaitning

Woodcarved painting based on the woodcut print technique I do love and have explored for years. In this new medium I created I bring innovation from the inspiration of the traditional woodcut works, the Norwegian culture and our greatest artist Munch.
