I am educated as a graphic designer and after a while I started the design agency Blanke Ark, which I managed for 23 years. I sold the agency in 2012, and now I have got a atelier at Vøyenenga in Bærum, near by Oslo and I work as a full-time artist.
I am inspired by : WHAT IS TIME?
Is time as a straight line or a circle?
Absolutely central to our western culture is the idea that time moves. Things are changing. Every moment moves forward and divides the time in the past, present and future. A common notion is that time moves like a river, with no possibility to stop or turn. The past is thus locked. The future we can not do anything about, it is completely open and anything can happen. We can only get there by letting us drive down the river. If we change the past, we also change present.
If you travel back in time so you always have existed in the past. We can not travel back in our own timeline… Perhaps there are multiple universes?
If the future already exist?
There are many who are researching this with time. Experiments show that there is no absolute time, such as Newton thought. Present is an illusion created in our own minds. If future, present and past coexist, will that remove the possibility that a human being has free will. If the future already exists, it does no longer matter what choices you make. Elections has already been provided.
Technically I work with photography as a background for the paintings. Afterwards, the motives are worked on in Photoshop, then painted with acrylic on canvas.
I have done a number of exhibitions, I am represented by several professional galleries and I have a large audience. I work with photography, Photoshop, collage, acrylic paint, oil crayon, mixed media and lithography. I experiment with different techniques, which together becomes my personal expression.
