When does art becomes art?

Ran into these sketches. Made a long, long time ago. Very small in size.

But can you imagine, for instance the first three pieces. That I paint these sketches on al large scale.

Let’s say: 300 by 200 cm? Wouldn’t that be great?

Völuspá 5

I decided to investigate the Völuspá series more (see the small image, Völuspá 1). It’s a tricky path to follow.

My work has everything to do with the creation of life, the creation of the world. Shapes are getting their form. When is something just paint and when does it transform into an organic form of life? The laws of nature, are yet to be made.

So there is chaos. But that doesn’t mean you can just paint whatever you want and that you don’t have to deal with the laws of the visual arts.

Think about colour contrast, composition, texture, depth, light etc. etc.
