I make large scale drawings on paper using an old fashioned dip pen. 

I am using this technic for its intimacy, clarity and fineness. 

The drawing consist of countless little coloured ink lines / stokes. 

It’s a manifestation, visualization and storage of time. 

It’s a very time consuming process; it takes months before a drawing is finished.

Seen from a distance, a drawing looks like a flickering painting, up close, it shows microcosms of a thousands lines.

Taking distance again- various colours blend together into new- and lines cluster to take on new shapes.

A situation is created in which you can zoom -in and -out; where you can choose your own ways of viewing, your own perspective.

This duality gives my works a certain amount of tranquility; one can almost disappear into them.

My drawings are intuitively drawn, in a non objective, abstract way.

The drawings could be perceived as emotional landscapes, maps of thinking, abstract networks or aerial images.

The inevitability of the large formats and the share amount of work they take to make them, somehow have their effect on the viewer; they set in motion a sense of recognition bout the own self / thinking processes.

„I am trying to visualise the thinking process, the formation of ideas and concepts concerning our ever changing interpretations of reality; the creative process itself.“
