Core series

My current artistic research concerns the aesthetics of violence/power. Creating and destroying are used both to amplify and deny each-other.

The aesthetical angle is used to make a comment in a open way, and stress the ambiguity of power and violence instead of cutting it short.

I use horsepower to visualise the power (both hierarchical and physical), tenderness, mythical and pre-industrial layers in the work.
