Art is a language, each piece of art a statement. My pictures are often abstract, not nonfigurative , but abstract – extracting or emphasizingcertain aspects of the idea or structure at hand. As in ”Femal Rune”- The runes originally being magic symbols to enable contact with that which is not obviously visible.
I am now working towards three solo exhibitions - Two in Norway in 2017 and one in New York(february 2019).
