34x43 cm | Filler, oak frame
Passepartout is a series of grey monochrome paintings apart from a white rim. It resembles an artwork with a passe-partout where the images is missing. It deals with the perception that the image we see inside our minds when we look at the world, is actually covering the reality as it is in itself.
Template is an array of works made by using pieces of wooden plates as templates. They function a bit as a mould or matrix for the finished work. The plates are attached inside the frame and after the first layer of filler had dried they are removed. The remaining empty spaces are filled with filler of a different colour.
Reminiscent of Richard Serra's Verb List I try to use simple and clearly defined actions to shape the filler in my works. This way there is always non-cognitive aspects of the production process.
