“In my paintings, I seek an encounter with the grandeur of wild nature. Man's smallness in the face of the vast, uncontrolled. At the same time, they have sprung from my imagination and thus pure cultural products. I think that contradiction is exciting and interestingly enough, it will still be a journey for me into something unknown, at the same time as it will be a reflection of myself. I work with a process where chance at first shows different possibilities. Then I move the image towards greater and greater clarity, until I have reached a place that on some level feels real. In my art, I have also worked with, often with a humorous approach, processing and shaping styles and phenomena through the ages. Among other things, I have worked with themes such ascostume history, music history and houses. I have also, with a certain amount of surrealism, created small scenes where characters meet and stories are hinted at. I now work mainly with painting and drawing, but have also worked with sculpture and performance. ”
