Technique

I work with painting, photography and print. I take photos using macro photography of surface patterns like ice, rocks, (berg), water and industrially made objects. After I review my photos on the computer I recreate the motifs on paper. I sketch up the lines that interest me and when I am satisfied with the result I start painting on canvas or large piece of paper using wood branches and spatula. My artwork is an abstraction of the nature from both Norway and Iceland.

Inspiration:

I explore patterns that I find in nature and in life, patterns that sometimes might not be visible to the naked eye.
