“All forms of energy, including light, cause gravitation and are under the influence of it”
Light Matter Series is a study of gravity, mass and luminousness through color and texture.
I started exploring mass and how I could represent it on canvas. I wanted to crate a feel of both weight and suspended levitation. Inspired by the structures and layers in minerals geometrical shapes came to represent these masses. I’m interested in the tensions between the color fields and how their own gravitational pull with in the painting worked of the other masses suspended on the canvas. I intend to create a dialog between the clear geometrical shapes and organic wave motion found in particles. The color composition consists in neon colors and paint with high luminousness. Exploring the potential of color.
Dark matter is non-luminous material that is thought to exit in our universe. It is elusive and deductible only by how it influences matter around it. “Light matter”, opposite of it’s name sake, demands attention and draws it’s viewers in.

Pink Matter series
This works are a study of pink matter inspired by planets, Saturn moon Titan and pink last mineral formations. The bubble-shape forms intent to defy gravity becoming into a flowing matter with luminescence and solid color.
