Artist's Statement

For a while now I have been concerned with the use of the line
in my artwork.
Traditionally the line relates to drawing.
I am trying to push the concept of the line to a placeĀ 
where painting and drawing meet, with the use of a brush.

The line by its nature extends infinitely in both directions,
therefore allowing me to go to a place beyond our concrete and visible reality.
I want to make paintings with the most simple and direct means,
investigating color, space, light and how to apply the paint on the surface.

In my new work I make a line-segment each second with the assist of a metronome
and clock and take notes about the specific time I work on each piece.
Capturing a succession of elusive moments, I want to make visible
the process of time and how it unfolds.
The fundamental question for me is how to go beyond the measurable
and enter into the immeasurable.
