A tree in the forest

I often start my drawing with an idea in my mind. Something I really want to do. Like to make a drawing of an old tree. Often my hands end up changing the idea. The Nobel Prize winner Jose Saramago have a wonderful story in one of his books where he tell a tale of an artist and how his hands has a brain of its own. I feel related to this story. My hands has their own stories. When I start working, it is like going on a journey. The ocean has streams the boat follows. Maybe you caught a fish more marvellous than you could imagine. Like in the «Finn Family Moomintroll» of Tove Jansson where they caugt a huge fish. Larger than the boat.

I like being a tree watcher. They are all different.

Pennesplitter og blyanter

Agnes Katrine Hagens vare strek gjør noe med meg hver gang jeg får mulighet til å se noen av tegningene hennes. Hver tegning er en egen verden. Streken er dynamisk og beveger seg inn mot den neste. Hele arket er fylt av en stille bevegelse. Jeg vet hvor lang tid det tar å tegne når du sitter med pennesplitt og blekkhus. Det er et langsomt arbeid. Stille og umerkelig vokser tegningen ut av arket.   Kan den tiden det tar, gjøre noe med det det blir?
