ARTIST'S STATEMENT

A paper has the ability to reflect inner experiences that are created within meeting different selfobjects, this reflection is an act of holding, time stopping, giving us an opportunity to observe what we internalize, miss and repress. Thus the observation at the artistic process and the final product helps us shape a more cohesive and an integrative self. 

This project plays both roles the converter, the Medium, of abstract thoughts, emotions and questions regarding self worth, self image and the general coping with our fast paced world into painting, but also a selfobject, the product, that creates a new experience.
