ANAMNESIS OF LANDSCAPE
This Series of paintings allows me
to immerse into " pure " painting
without being lost in it.
Over the years I have searched for
this freedom in my work.
I explore and try to find the balance
between the realistic image and the
pictorial values for my paintings.
The concept of multiple canvases
and panels has always fascinated
It leads me towards the medieval
concept of religious paintings and
I hope that spirituality and serenity
are integral to my work.
Colour and light are additional fac-
tors that guide my work.
Colour to me is light.
For me, the Anamnesis Paintings
come close to musical experience.
I feel these works are a more direct,
human and spiritual expression
without confinement of the motif or
formal restriction; yet still consist of
all those elements that I have ex-
plored in my work over the years.
I do not use my photograph as
“support material” for my paintings,
but rather as a loose inspiration.
For me these photographs have a
separate identity as I am searching
with my camera a personal inter-
pretation of the subjects.
This is my journey through Iceland
and Greenland in summer 2011.
