"My aim is to transform individual filtering processes into a contemporary visual language. I strive to use the instantly recognizable shape to pull the viewers gaze into the more ambiguous realm of layers, lines, shapes and patterns surrounding it. These patterns or shapes are pieces of filtering interpreted from my life through the lens of a camera: They are from real objects or places, but manipulated through several steps of stylizing and editing. Together with the intrusion of the human figure, which is very important to me, I’m trying to explore and research visual memory, aesthetic heuristics and visual filtering. While I am in a constant search for new relationships between the background and the main subject matter or foreground, I aim to create a forum where the viewer uses my images as visual cues to unlock their personal memories and dreams, combine them and create their own imaginary void."

Born 1980 in Kongsberg Norway. Lives and works in England.
