The series is based on a repetition of a form from an electrical cabinet where I have built up a pictorial space with various approaches. I have thought of the word "abstraction" as a way to scale the reality by looking at it and react to it.

I draw some of my inspiration from the "art concert" movements idea that paintings only should refer to themself as a painting and to nothing else on the outside. That's an idea that I am intrigued by, even though I think that is impossible. Yet I see it every day in my surroundings in the form of tags and dirt layering on top of each other on various places.

Step aside. Repeal. Tear it down.
