I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN ATTRACTED TO THE IDEA
OF A ’HOME’
AS A SPACE WHERE YOU RELOAD
AS A SPACE WHERE YOU RECONNECT WITH
THE UNIVERSE
AS A SPACE OF TRANSMISSION

A short statement.

As an artist I have a vision for the future, where Light is filling homes and public spaces much more and in a new way. As my work of art I'm therefore making huge transparent Lamps in materials that refract light into colors or turning colors into light. The idea is to free as much light as possible and in the same time show the beauty of light. Each Lamp is a light and color phenomena changing with the light in the room and the angle of the viewer. Studying the Barock period in Europe made me long to make an impact on the world today and tomorrow bringing complex  structures, abundance and beauty into a simple wholeness of light that would change a room, a space or a place in an up lifting and profound way. The sizes of the Lamps are variable and are thought to be fitted into rooms, spaces and people. To me art is about putting out clues for the future worth following, and as an avantgarde artist I'm attracted to art that works through its practical function as well as its wonders and phenomenas.
