INSIDE OUT

"Inspired by a dramatic scenery, unspoken forces, volcanos throwing fire and ashes on virgin snow, hot sources and masses of water falling and falling in front of me, the breath of a little horse, the rythm of an ancient language. Conversations with earth elements. A picture stream of frozen moments, stories - sagas. A transformation. Images turned from positive to negative - inside out - like the ancient spiritual principle that real work is always created from the inside".

INSIDE OUT is a photographic / graphic extension of a residency stay during 2011 in Reykjavik. My return to ICELAND in 2014 was like a circle being closed but also like a new beginning. 

All printed as photogravure during a working grant at Gl. Dok, Copenhagen at the Danish National Workshop for Arts and Craf. Paper quality heavy Zerkall Wove off white 340g, edition of 25, format 52 x 68 cm, plate size 32 x 32 cm,  embossed and discreetly signed on front.

A full size artist book on same paper quality with 19 pages, 16 photogravures, colofon, hardover, screen printed text, with cassette. Limited edition of one (1) sigened book.  A smaller size artist book has been made as well:    

Common for the gravures is the fact that they should really be appreciated in real life since the digital version does not render the full tactile qualilties of the gravure.
