Drawing, painting, collage. Traditional and digital techniques. Figurative form and classical composition. An expression that moves between the subtle and the raw.
Order and chaos. Fusion of opposites. All this, in the colorful field between black and white.
Why the name “prikk strek bue”? It means “dot line curve” in norwegian. The very basics of drawing.
