Statement: I work with different medias, as painting,sculpture and collage.
As an artist it is a great thing, to find a tool or a technique,that suits the sort of creativity,that one has.
Personally I do enjoy, to work with collages.
As, I am very interested in composition,the collage technique,gives me the chance to move around the parts in the images, until new pictures appears.
For the past few years, I have worked with my creations in the computer. This has given me the chance to build in my paintings and 3d works, as colors and shapes into new images.
In autumn of 2008,I started to show my collage works at this site.
One of my digital collages,resulted in a real comission.The image THIN ICE, did become a big print, for the new Google center in Stockholm, Sweden.
It became a theme for a permanent installation for the reception room. In that work, I did also work with a big branch, that partly became covered in different
prints of my collages, so that the installation became another collage,but in a bigger size,and 3-dimensional.This work where installed in october 2009, and were curated by artists.de.
