"My paintings are part of an intuitive process where I examine shapes, colors and space.
I use these elements to create layers and setups where my investigation is about uncovering their relationship. Either to harmonize or to disharmonize.
The urge for this comes from the impressions that both the inner and outer world have left me with and which I must have balanced and filtered outward.
As artist Per Kirkeby has said: It is a way of "getting visual and emotional impulses out".
The process extends over time and space, both as a dialogue, but also as a flow where time and space do not exist.
Therefore, the process can sometimes be finished before the painting and other times the process continues after the painting is finished. Sometimes words or phrases come out of it which I use wholly or partly in connection with naming the different paintings.
These often tell me something about what is going on inside. "
