I have always been attracted to structures and the so-called soft materials paper, textile, and certain types of wood. I constantly need frameworks as a starting point in order to begin creating something. Although I value nothing higher than freedom, I need a more or less strict system in which I can develop my ideas. This basic attitude made me turn to some traditional techniques. Boundaries and rules can also be very inspiring once you are well accustomed to them, and it is also a great pleasure to design my own principles. Since 2013, among others, I have been working on my folded objects that are usually folded from a single piece of canvas. The fabric and the oil paint are of course a reference, a kind of homage to classical painting, but my works should definitely not be called paintings. I work with basic geometric shapes that are almost trivial, yet at the same time essential and universal. In recent times, in contrast to my previous photographic work, three-dimensionality has been coming to the fore in my work. My main ambition is to create pure works of art that invite the viewer to decipher them. Recently I have been working on so called floor pieces and shaped canvas ring objects to reach some new directions in my art practice and develop my artworks into sculptural, space reflecting items. These works were partly inspired by an imaginary traditional Japanese tee room, where it is not allowed to install artworks in a traditional western way, like hanging pictures on de wall, except scroll paintings. My current pieces could been placed on the floor or eventually on a pedestal. These works investigate the contrast between soft and hard, flat and sculptural. My aspiration is to transform soft, plane fabrics to three dimensional objects choosing high quality traditional materials, like silk and moiré. The range of colours of my works are strictly monochrome, mainly white, grey or silver.
