Dictionary entry on mark-making:
“A mark, shape, or word that is written or drawn on something.”
In 2015, I moved to London for a two-year period. I had been accepted at the Fine Art programme at Central Saint Martins. Every morning I took bus 390 – Three Ninety – from Hyde Park to our studios in Archway in the northern part of London and I sat on the upper deck – preferably on the front seat so I could follow all that happened on during the trip. And I became overwhelmed by this city of millions.
First, I was interested in all the marks on the roads that regulate the enormous number of people and busses and taxies and cars and delivery vans that descend on the city every day. The markings are hand painted, that is very obvious, and you notice their individual character. I started to collect material and make photographs in the city and then expanded my area of interest to include illegal marks – graffiti – which is primarily about expressing a personal opinion. I put the two worlds together, constructed a compressed space and made a collage. Then I made some more collages that developed into this series.
The artwork ‘No’ was accepted for Chroma’s Red Issue, a small juried exhibition in Safehouse 1 on Copeland Road in London. All artworks in the series are 21 x 30 cm and printed on fine-art paper.

When you buy from the web shop, it is much like it used to be when the internet was first emerging and it was quite normal to exchange a number of emails about payment and delivery. But it is easy. 🙂 You start by sending me a mail, and I will write you back with precise information on how to proceed.
