Through the Lines I Draw

I am attracted to lines and drawings. For me, anything that is uncertain in a way triggers emotional feelings. I can name a few emotional things here; water, time, space, a line, a dot, a dream, a shadow, a memory, diaries, stains, foot prints… I draw wobbly lines that I have less control of. Continuous lines, oval shaped circles, weird looking forms too. They are some parts intentional and some parts just a move of my hand.

I am interested in the talks that is not said rather than the ones that have managed to. The hole in the world of fully compact verbal and imagery informations. We live in a increasingly uncertain and complex world yet with a casual attitude towards objective facts. We talk so easy but often don’t know the truth if there even is one. When we think something is not true enough to be talked about we are lost, and don’t have a clue where to find it. In my paintings I stand by the fact that I am lost. I often draw a line without decision and draw over it or I erase it.

The more I search for order and structure, I find holes and disconnection between spaces. The process of my paintings are continuous duel of ambivalence. Connection and disconnection, balance and lean, structure and chaos, continuity and temporality.. .

Through the lines I draw, I search for sensitivity. The focus is on the lines that cross and tangle and stick out. Trying to understand the process and the space where I exist while I am painting becomes both my question and answer. 2019
