Autodidact Artist from Denmark
The lines in my paintings are minimalistic and simple although irregular, curved and mixed with strait lines conveying a sense of agility, beauty, dynamism and equilibrium. The paintings are created in an abstract , non-figurative idiom based on line, color and shape.
The works are devoid of narrative and without symbolic content, communicated directly through sensory elements and via immediate experience. The colors glow with energy and vitality and makes the work vibrant. I often use recycling materials of which I read their story and bring them to life again. I use ancient canvas, heterogeneous and obsolete maps, cobberplates, media coverage or old sheets of music revealing colors with patina. I have a weakness for old frames especially silver and gold plated frames with patina.
“I write with my eyes as I feel that I can draw and paint shapes that I have no words for”.
This piece is painted on the flip side of an old school map of Spain. The frame is an ancient gold-plated frame with patina found in an antique shop in Copenhagen.
