Controlling the coincidence (2016). Epoxy, fiberglass, acrylics and oil on canvas. 200 x 150 cm.

  My paintings are interplay of randomness and structure. They may have an allusion to reality, but it is often informal and indistinct.

  The subject can almost remind of something but never completely. We are in the gap between something and nothingness/the abstract.

  Every painting starts with a sketch or an idea; a starting point to build on. The idea is always "something". It can be a line, a geometrical form, or a part of a body.

  The painting process can be rough. The painting may be exposed to the weather and the color can be washed off with a garden hose. When the colors and forms are washed away we move into the nothingness or the unknown. There is usually a hint of reality left behind.

  In my paintings I use traditional materials as oil or acrylics, but also found objects and industrial materials such as epoxy and fiberglass.
