top No chaos. Damn it!

As a child, I once fell down a tree. I just fell a few branches, ended up upside down, caught on a branch by one of my rubber boots. My mother claims I never made a sound - just hanged there quietly. I do not remember this myself, but I like to believe that I enjoyed the view. Up in the trees everything looks a little "Pollockesque".

I remove the "jazz" of Pollock's paintings, and create sugestive mirrors wich is largely based on light-dark contrasts rather than chromatic structure. The round shape is a comment on my use of a lens based equipment - Kodak's very first camera availiable to the public; the “No. 1 Kodak”, provided round images. It's also a reference to the "tondos" - a Renaissance term for a circular work of art.

I´ve used hand made filters, and I´ve agitated the camera - forcing spontaneity into different forms. I´m interested in the tension between spontaneity and limitations..

'I am nature', Jackson Pollock.

My mother has told me that I as a two to three year old (almost) fell down from a huge ash. I was hooked up in one of the branches, and ended up hanging upside down in one of my rubber booths. I never made a sound - just hanged there quietly. I do not remember this myself, but I like to believe that I enjoyed the view.
