«Naturens orden og kaos nr. 1 og nr. 2.
(Trans. Order and chaos, In Nature.)
Two separate artworks, diptychs. Acrylic on canvas.

Both artworks are explorations around life and death, order and chaos, in nature. I have attempted to describe these topics with the use of symbols such as the square and the circle, intertwined one half of the painting, and on the other half, I have painted what can be associated with vegetation, such as root systems or blood vessels.

The two primary forms, the circle and the square have had symbolic functions throughout the history of art.

Since ancient times, the circle has been connected to the source and origin of life, eternity, the holistic and perfection. The circle has also been a symbol of powerful and supernatural forces.

The circle is a universal symbol with extensive meaning. It represents the notions of totality, wholeness, original perfection, the Self, the infinite, eternity, timelessness, all cyclic movement, God (‘God is a circle whose center is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere’)

Hermes Trismegistus.
