Hanging on

Hanging on


Sometimes it can feel like one is just hanging on. Hanging on to a job, a relationship, a friendship, old habits, memories and the stuff that we surround our self with. Hanging on is ok but it is up to each one of us to edit our lives in order to hang on to the right stuff; the people and stuff that really matters.

Series : Connected 2019

Everything is connected, the past and the present, what we do off and online. My current body of work is informed by the way we as human beings relate and interact with each other. My collages and paintings are mostly abstract but if you look closely you might spot characters interacting within the frame, that’s if you choose to. I am interested in striking a balance between free expression of colours and brush strokes fuelled by human emotion and finding a moment of stillness. This is what I try to achieve within my collages and paintings. For me, the dots in my work represent islands of clarity and focus.

Colour is central in my work. I collect colour stories wherever I go. I collect these stories on my way to the studio, going back to Norway and on my travels. These fragmented colour combinations collected as photos act as catalysts for the more extensive colour work I undertake in my studio. Read my colour journal
