The images in this series, titled Beddingwood, creates a realism that at all times is anchored through documentation, but at the same time creates a fictive zone that makes possible retrospective as well as sideways views onto the real world (Time maps).
The starting point was two huge industry halls at an abandoned shipyard, situated in Fredrikstad (FMV). Today these halls have been thorn down. In that perspective “Urban palimpsest” becomes just a quiet contemplation over something that is gone forever.
'The Sun' is the main image of this series. My intention was that every change of the view to another point, would also be a change in time and orientation - the perspective is torn 'inside out'. In this setting lines plays an important role. The title is 'approriated' from Edvard Munch's "The Sun".
I had a dream about sheeps this night.. Actually - I dreamed I WAS a sheep..
Dream Interpretation forum says: to dream of sheep may indicate that you are following a conventional way and falling in with what everyone expects of you. The opposite meaning is symbolised by the ram, which is an individualist.
As a child, I once fell down a tree. I just fell a few branches, ended up upside down, caught on a branch by one of my rubber boots. My mother claims I never made a sound - just hanged there quietly. I do not remember this myself, but I like to believe that I enjoyed the view. Up in the trees everything looks a little "Pollockesque".
I remove the "jazz" of Pollock's paintings, and create sugestive mirrors wich is largely based on light-dark contrasts rather than chromatic structure. The result is a setting up of a rigorous play of Pollock/anti-Pollock polarities in each work
The round shape is a comment on my use of a lens based equipment - Kodak's very first camera availiable to the public; the “No. 1 Kodak”, provided round images.
