After severe and life threatening illness, - I have been touring and trekking in Norway, Sweden and Iceland, since summer 2004.
All those sights and fabulous landscapes gave me the passion for rocks and stones, earth and sand, lava and floating ore steaming hot water, - all basic elements for life itself, and have been my main inspiration ever since .
“ When I focus on the wilderness – the virgin nature and its expansiveness in all directions – as my main impression of the country, at the same time choosing as my working method a close contact with landscapes and their creatures, zooming in on patterns and structures in rocks and lava stones , this may look like a paradox, but it is not.
In this way I can pass on the experience – of finding the hidden understanding of the totality in the little details, and through this close reading a story evolves. “
