Drawing, Painting, Installation and Animation

en rombasert installasjon med Plastarbeider og Maleri på lerret. De tredimensjonale Plastarbeidene og Plastbannnermaleriene er laget av tykk, blank og myk PVC. PVC-duken er i sterke primær eller sekundærfarger eller om man vil fikserte plastfarger som en slags maleriske readymades.
Maleriene som tradisjon med olje/ akryl – - og eller brukket, blandet og behandlet som pigmenter og farger på lerret forholder seg til, likner på og aviker fra Plastikkarbeidene.
My statement could be told with the exictense of a wobbly career going on for almost three decades as a performer in visual art.
Exhibitions or just work in progress in my studio are the alternations what keep the project going.
But still drawing has been the one common thread in all my work.
A work in progress and one of my latest works is the Animation with the title (english) Yes, Yes, Yes.
The ambiguous reading and that the entire project staggers between structure and collapse is perhaps important. If so it applies both in sculptural or istallationlike work and in the the more narrative drawings.

Planned projects and exhibitions

A work in progress and one of my latest works is the Animation with english title Yes, Yes, Yes (Norwegian Ja, Ja, Ja). The animation is with a homemade soundtrack and wery much based on real pencildrawings on paper. It appears on a large scale on the wall in the studio by a projector.
Another and a not less important project I am into these days is plastic works due to paintings on canvas as an installation.
This could be formulated as an alternation between the two options: Plastic Works and Paintings mimic each other, and Plastic Works and Paintings tends toward visual and expressive diversity.
Those are two parts of a new exhibition suggestions and process-oriented studio work for the next two or maybee three or actualy 10 years which also has the main title Yes, Yes, Yes (Norwegian Ja, Ja, Ja).
