Heidi Stibæk Kaiser
"My works occupy an abstract expressionist territory where there is no direct reference to anything in the real world. The paintings have their own logic and being, without messages or illusion. I am interested in the painting as an object.
The painterly process is delimited by the chosen surface, which forms the limits for the experiment and a bodily interaction with the canvas. I build color, gesture and composition in many layers - sometimes according to a simple procedural rule set, other times the strategies are more complicated based on a mood or a certain inner energy."
