Im trying to explore the concept of layering, the same as in the sculptures, where you see the beauty of our north sea but after some shaving you hit the enormous layers of plastic floating around in them.
This Njørdwest is one of the first of my shapers series. A technique I’m using to shave off layers of paint revealing the flow of the brushes and everything hidden under the top layer.
To give the paint the right texture I use Seawater and its painted on a book i found along the road. A handwritten book from around 1890 where the first steps of the industrial age are described in German.
Delight is in the details
