These prints are a kind of window back to childhood. Was it an elk in the forest or a bent tree? Is the strange woman dangerous or funny? Are the forest in the night filled with other things than in daytime? The night time is a time for fantasy. But also fear of darkness. As an artist, I am allowed to play at work. I do it often. Are you able to play at work or other places? Do it. It makes wonders.
A floating world. Two old trees. Grass. The small world is floating in the air. A visit from an angel. The copperplate is almost too huge for my printing press, 70 x 80 cm. I love to work with the drypoint, you work directly into the plate with a needle. This is mostly done with a diamond. This plate is meant for changing. The title «The world is changing» helps me to rembember the change. Next step is to remove something. And add something else. It is like working on a story.
A world without the sounds of birds is an impossible imagination. At this time of the year they are slowly increasing their songs. We think it is kind of romantic to listen to them. But their songs contains meanings like «Fuck off!» or «This is my territory, I will kill you if you come near my tree!» Anyway, this is a kind of music I enjoy.
