Title: Synergy
Year Completed: 2021
Size: 40 x 50 cm
Technical: Acrylic painted on plywood

I have in a long period experimented, both consciously and subconsciously, with repeating the same objects and shapes in different ways. This creates a different picture and perception than the object or the shape alone. An important part of this is the way the shapes are related to each other. For me this is some kind of reflection of life: it is not always the elements, but the way they are fitted together which is para-mount. And sometimes we actually manage to create a synergy. “synergy is an interaction or cooperation giving rise to a whole that is greater than the simple sum of its parts”
