Computer graphics

For the past few years, I've been playing with an electrical pen, tablet, and computer to make sketches for my paintings. I used to delete these sketches after having used them, but recently it appeared to me that I might as well use them for signed numbered prints like I do with my linocuts. The computer is just a little more practical tool for the same purpose. My expression is still the same, and both computer graphics and linocuts result in the same: Black ink on paper, so why not. Before man invented linoleum, the artists did the same works in wood, which is a lot more complicated as well. Sure the wood-cutters had prejudgement like the graphical artists against the computer. Below are the results of some of my computer-works, now judge for yourself. Eventually compare them with my linocuts.

My concept: Transformationism

            A dynamic overview! ***

1989 - A leap into a unpredictable life as a visual artist

Inspired by a fascination with the American satire magazine MAD's illustrator Don Martin's drawings and the Danish Caricature artist Roal Als. Seven years of work at my father's architect's studio, studies of right-wing extremism during world war II and the French Revolution, the breakdown of the Berlin wall, Nietzches delirious speech about the death of God, Freud's dream interpretation, Salvador Dalí's surrealistic universe, Kierkegaard's existentialistically concept of irony, and concept of Anxiety, poetry by the Danish author Thorkild Bjørnvig, Mozart's opera Don Juan, and Pink Floyd's musical interpretation of reality, in 1989, I burned all the bridges behind me. I jumped into life with the red soft forms of insecurity - into life as a full-time painter. In the beginning, I painted everything with a wide paintbrush. Soft shapes. Without much detail, and to my surprise, the painting became my soul mirror, each time revealing my Anxiety. The basic form of these soft forms of Anxiety comes from a cartoon smiley that I developed up through the 80s for diligent use as graffiti and on all surfaces that could be drawn on. As I start painting, the smile suddenly turns into a scream, and if one were to sound my early pictures, Pink Floyd's "The big gig in the sky" would be very appropriate.
