Artist statement:
In my work I tell a story about feelings, atmosphere and events of life using the language of drawing and painting instead of words. I try to communicate without using the spoken and written language.
My most important tool is drawing. I keep turning back to this activity and find both pleasure and much sense in doing so. I take great care when choosing my motives. I often use a specific motive in a series of pictures – thus seeking to let the motives contribute to the intention of my work.
My artwork often brings fairytales in mind. In this universe I find a contrast between good and evil/ beauty and ugliness/ confidence and fear /.. that keeps fascinating me. I want my work of art to reflect these contradictions of life.
Just as old Danish folktales, told through generations, contains a certain pattern – a specific rhythm, the repetition of some elements and magic numbers - my work uses rhythm, patterns and repetitions as important parts. Motives such as birds, flowers or insects might be used to create a universe of poetry and dreams – and by placing these elements in a landscape with some surprising or dangerous details the vision is challenged or contradicted. Or the contradiction may occur by placing a dangerous motive in a peaceful environment. I want my work suggest and to bring up questions rather than to give definite answers. To give birth to dreams as well as nightmares and bring both comfort and discomfort at the same time.
While I am working questions seems to rise during the process. Also new ideas and feelings come to my mind and onto the canvas or paper. I think my best work is created when I give much room to intuition and “stomach feelings” and thus allow the story I am telling to change directions during the process. And I find that my best works of art are the ones with more than one question and more than one answer.
