ABOUT THE WORK
Prepare, Window, Now! is a series of works made at the beginning of 2018. The series is created by a reactive outburst of quick drawings that observe, relive, and intuitively sketch the spiritual and physical states present in the distancing, separating and parting of people. This topic may be naively honest but it is irreversibly timeless and has brought about the inspiration for these creations.
The first work in the series, “With No Name in Heaven or Hell”, forms the introduction to these states which are portrayed in a vortex swarming with faces, bodies and symbols. The work depicts what pulsates and travels through thoughts in slowed down moments that make human life full of challenges and temptations.
Collectively the compositions associated with a purgatory or ritualistic scene, with works also suggesting a mutated state of paired contrasts: dualisms between two versions of reality and the internal struggle of good and evil. It makes some kind of an entity whose vibrating expression is filling and emptying, gliding through a dream and passing through reality until the final fatigue of memory and feelings fade.
Windows open and relive, they reduce the self-glancing through aeration. The title of the exhibition, Prepare, Window, Now! is more like a “back title”, because the awakening of the inner self is in some way the destination of this creative transition.
This series is hand-drawn using modern tools such as an iPad and Stylus and has been digitally printed on paper. Series is printed in an edition of 30 and will not be reprinted. All prints are signed by the artist.
