Artist Statement

My works and pictures are usually made in ink and oil colors. These are the two main styles and medias I´ll use. My works are reflections to my internal and the external life. In my work I´ll try to put my life-experiences visible as a whole. My surroundings and the presence of people in my life are very important to me, challenging and lively, but they do not appear as recognizable personalities in my works.

In my art realism intertwined with fantasy, while maintaining a full-time touch with reality. My works is becoming increasingly "human condition" of humanity and the possibilities of a purely increasingly complex world, targeting with life's passion, flair, and awareness of the common life forces.

My way of working is simple, easy and quite unsystematic. I´ll usually work with traditional tools, brushes, oils, canvases, paper etc. The source material for much of my work comes from all kind of different structures and ideas that surround me, physically and mentally and my inspirations come straight from life, ideas, interactions and the battle of the moments between knowledge and emptiness.

I work by adding a slightly more broad outlines of the material and color, and if necessary, I ´ll take them away, again and again – as long as the work starts to communicate with me and responds to my suggestions. It is characteristic to my working as artist that I respect also the so-called “damages” and “coincidences” as part of the process. I'll try to keep myself open.

As an artist I´m trying to transfer the understanding and feel of the unspoken onto a paper or canvas and dissolve the divide between the practice of different cultural forms and the practice of painting.

I give the painting a lot of time, it is interesting. It is the freedom to seek, explore, change direction and eventually find something touching and relevant. In my works there are no “things bigger than human”, because then I would underestimate and patronize the recipients of my works. Communication with the audience is an immediate goal for me.
