Interview 2018

Som kunstner arbejder jeg fra to forskellige modpoler: fra et naivt, barnligt univers af drømme og til tider absurditeter; samt fra et eksistentialistisk univers baseret på universel stilhed og intethed ofte kombineret med en spirituel dimension.

Mine interesse-felter spænder fra det kreative over det intellektuelle og spirituelle. Jeg afsluttede min MA i maleri med en praktisk-teoretisk afhandling med titlen:

Non-state of Mind - The significance of meditative and transcendental artworks in the context of Descartes' rational logic and Rousseau's criticism of civilization

My artwork is based on my interest in the magic of existence in general and the human condition in particular. As an artist I work from two opposite poles: from a naive, childish departure point of dreams and sometimes absurdities; and from an existentialist departure point of universal emptiness and nothingness often combined with an inner dimension of spiritual silence.

I am interested in both creative, intellectual and spiritual aspects of life and completed my MA-project Non-state of Mind, with a practical-theoretical thesis titled:

"Non-state of Mind - The significance of meditative and transcendental artworks in the context of Descartes' rational logic and Rousseau's criticism of civilization"
