About this series:
series I test the limits and the balance of power between architecture and the
endless expanses of the Icelandic landscape. The architecture dissolves and yet
it still forms a space, even if only fragments remain. Just a few windows, a
staircase - and yet an idea of the space you can't see is formed in your head.
work in general:
I question our world and our view of it. The conditio humana - the nature of
man and the human being as creator and destroyer is crucial in most of my
works. Due to the inhomogeneity of the used pictorial elements I create new
thematic references. In my collages, I combine various photographs of nature,
architecture with painted fragments and structures. Time and space, new and
old, overlap both in form and substance. I create mysterious and atmospheric
scenes that leave room for the viewers own interpretations and associations.
About my technique and Material:
With my specially developed technique, I transfer the digital artwork into an
original work in which the haptic materiality plays a major role. In a complex
process the artwork is printed on a canvas which is covered completely with
leaf silver and then poured into epoxy resin. This gives the works an optical
depth and a special quality of the surface. The silver in the background makes
the colors shine from the inside out - so the pictures have a different
appearance from every angle.
