"The illumination of art"

"The illumination of art"

195 x 250 cm

2013

During my years working as an artist, I have found my self wondering about what art is and what it is not, an eternal question that might have millions of different types of answers.

Something that from time to time makes me doubt my work as an artist.

This work was shown in the exhibition "Krav om bolig af rimelig størrelse" from 2013.

We needed a certain size and type of apartment to be able to get a renewal of my residency permit. We didn't know more ways we could try, it's so hard to get an apartment in the short time we had.

"It gives me starry eyes"

55 x 63 cm

There is not much I can say about this work from 2013, more than: Art gives me starry eyes, art confuses me a lot, but there is something about art that keeps calling me.

This portrays my feelings/emotions looking at art.

"Natteregn"

"Natteregn"

50 x 65 cm

This work from 2013 relates to the weather as well as it relates to my father's death. Being confused and not really knowing how to feel. I started working with the rainy weather and its melancholy. 

"Yea man det regner sgu meget"

"Yea man det regner sgu meget"

56,3 x 60 cm

In 2013 I had a studio at Godsbanen and one very crappy rainy day I saw this guy come in through the door, very wet, very calm, and very nice with a calming smile on his face. I said: "Wow det regner meget, hva'?" And he said: "Yea man, det regner sgu meget." 

At this point I was working with the weather and the kind of sadness that it brings, so I couldn't help get inspired by this moment.

50 x 65 cm 

In the Gellerup area of Aarhus I was going to a meeting and this weird guy I had never seen before looked at me and started to ask me questions. I got a bit nervous about what he wanted, but gave it a chance and tried talking to him. When I continued on my way to the meeting I realized that all he wanted was to know how to get to Føtex (a supermarket).
