Indian Textile Crafts

I went to New Delhi, India for a year in 2003 at National Institute of Fashion Technology. My studies were guided by Sr. Professor Asha Baxi. The focus was on traditonal Indian textiles. It was a very thoughtfull year both professional and personal. I enjoyed my stay at the Institute very much, and I found a great beauty in the Indian textiles, which I mainly saw at the Crafts Museum in New Delhi, but also at the Calico Museum in Ahemdabad, Gujaret. In the last part of my year I went to different locations in Nort-West India to experince the crafts and meet the always welcoming people who are central to it´s continuous existence.

Pause

There is somthing special about old boats on land. They are just waiting for a ride in their real element. It´s like a visual pause between two actions (2008). 

  

 

Boring Sunday

In July 2007 I moved to Argentina for four months. My aim was to describe the everyday life in Buenos Aires through drawings and paintings. I wandered the streets to try to catch the essence of the city. I came to favour the boring sundays where the city was tranquil, bare and unveiled. To me that was the essence of Buenos Aires. In between I went for art lessons at Sandra Dorthey and Fabian Burgos, two really interesting Argentinian artists.
The drawings were displayed at KP08 (Kunstnernes Påskeudstilling 2008).
