Norwegian,  b.1971



My work addresses the boundaries that lie between sculpture and painting.
To explore which possibilities emerge where painting ends and where sculpture begins. Sculpture holds the possibility of magic; things can appear or disappear depending on where you stand in relation to the work. Paintings do not function like this; no matter where you stand, the painting will always look essentially the same. That relationship is a source of inquiry in how my paintings are conceived, perceived, received by the audience as well as how it addresses the space. Where light, form and color become a subject matter not only for how light functions, but the light itself. When we talk about how ideas are constructed, I would say for me it is the «architecture» of my thoughts. It is about the process, reducing forms to basic elements. The interplay between the additive and subtractive, the making and unmaking, constitutes the essence of my work. Using materials such as paint, sand, cement and plaster, working through a process where deconstruction and reconstruction of the surface goes beyond the subjective form of the original image. I appropriate paint conceptually as my “own paint”. The value of a monochrome painting becomes a strategy or a technique where Its self-imposed limitations are often regarded as demanding or difficult, I find it makes my work quite alive and accessible.
