Unconditional love for the world, good or bad, it is all worthy, it is all interesting. I find life to be absurd, but I cherish this. Meaning could constrain the world, make it smaller, and I just want it to be bigger. It might seem as if I seek closure, but through my curiosity, with every question, the world grows in both size and complexity.
I am not the kind of artist who dives deep into one media, maybe I’m not even the kind of person who dives deep into being an artist. But I do dive deep. I guess my subject is just a bit elusive to me, and it may very well be on purpose. In this way it stays a mystery, a mystery that lures me in and leaves room for creativity. Somewhat like how I see my creations. I like them to have a poetic touch, in the meaning that they are dense but incomplete, they leave room for movement with, in and of whoever chooses to dance with them.
Currently I’m creating a sort of meta-artpiece, which I call Artlaws. So far I myself am the only artist submitting pieces, but several other artists are about to join me. The concept is to give away the pieces for free. Seek to make them ownerless, sort of outlaws, hence the name Artlaws. And by doing so I am curious to see how the art moves between the hosts, and what it catalyzes. Therefore I appeal to the hosts to send me pictures, texts and to pass the pieces along. Drawing attention to the friction between movement and stagnation.
