I'm a queer visual artist and poet living in Bergen (NO), working from a deep interest in abstract painting, and expanding to include drawing, text, photography, sculpture and installation. I mainly create nonfiguratively, with attention to detail, and with an expressive vocabulary ranging between transparency and opacity. On a personal level my work has developed to be an exercise in finding the connections between the wordlessly fleeting qualities of my work and my queer gender identity. Through abstraction I distance the work from the recognisable form, and embrace the aesthetics of awkwardness, struggle, nonsense and contingency. I want my work to urge us to consider the in-between and changeable as a core component of survival.
