The River & Surf Paintings • (Collaboration with Jan Krogsgaard) are a part of the on-going The White Canvas Series, which is a series of interdisciplinary installation works. They consist of 5 media: white can- vas on frames, video (and/or) photography, the flow of a river/the breaks of a surf, and an act; becoming the statement displayed as the paintings. The paintings are made by entering the river/surf, with the white canvas, and letting the flow of the river / the break of the surf mark and pass over the canvas. The act of creating the paintings is document- ed in video and photographs. Without this documentation the white canvas would only have the story (and diachronic discourse) of a monochrome painting to tell.
The River Paintings is the first of a series of 7 River Paintings that will be done in seven different rivers.
