LIVES AND WORKS
LIVES AND WORKS
I have studied at several design schools and I have a Master in both Graphic Design and Industrial Design among many other subjects. I have worked much with digital channels and media. When I was younger I also studied several other art subjects, like painting, printing, drawing, and learned how to work with wood, glass, textile and silver. I have also studied art history and history of ideas, and besides contemporary art Ím specially attracted to Italian, French and Flemish art from the 13th to the 17th century.
I create images out from free images found on Internet together with my own photographs, paintings and drawings. My images becomes a transition and merging of places, times and meaning. History, present and future coexists in different overlapping or intertwined layers. They are both collective and very subjective narratives. This is the essence of the cyber world - time, space, subject and collective collapses into an all present now.
I find a fascination in the concept of using images that are freely available to anybody and a part of our digital world of stories. Together with my own photos and drawings they create a world that both are a part of everybodys heritage and in the same time very personal and related just to my own memories and associations.
I’m searching for meaning, interactions and aesthetic in the images that I meet. All my images are small stories, with an intrinsic meaning that you have to find and create by yourself. They are not enigmas, but points of departure for contemplation and associations.
The meaning and aesthetic of the image develops and changes during the working process, I never know where it will end.
Ím also fascinated by the fact that by working digitally the images can be reproduced in any size, on any material (even if I mostly produce them on Fine Art or Photographic paper), even made by robots to create murals, carpets, glass, plastic, textile, 3D, animations and so on. The material and meeting with them becomes a part of the story.
