Casa Color, Mosaic Art created from 1998 to 2009

From 1998 I dedicated myself to a new artistic medium which I had long sought to explore, mosaics,
another kind of expression whose medium requires another touch than painting.
All pieces in all my mosaics I cut by hand.

In Casa Color, a four-storeyed house in the harbor area of the village of Arguineguín, Gran Canaria, Spain, mosaics in the colours of the rainbow plays out on the facade, continuing in through the hallway with the small pieces of coloured tiles, extending from floor to ceiling, creating a colorful play of star symmetry blossoming within varied fields of tessellations, with pieces of mirrors creating a kaleidoscopic sensation with its reflections creating multitudes of patterns within one another, continuing all the way through the two staircases, one in the theme of indigo blue, leading up to the first floor only, and the other one going all the way up, one so to say spirals upwards through a rainbow tunnel, starting in the indigo blue, moving through passages of lighter blue, green, yellow, orange, and finally red, as one enters the fourth floor, and the light from the indigo blue decorated roof window awakens and plays on the small pieces of colours, and one may climb the last staircase through the roof entering the fifth-floor roof terrace where a large blue indigo star shines in the white sky of the terrace floor.

Exploring, through the many years of creating mosaic art, the open secrets of geometric compositions unfolding from within themselves and multiplying naturally in their own order of beautiful patterns, in
combination with my drawing studies, A Hundred Stars, playing out simultaneously, influencing my work both during this time, and also creating a solid foundation for me as I then immersed myself into my Symphonies of Geometry. It was in this period, in 2004, I painted my first Symphony of Geometry, Ajnaran (100x243cm, Oil on Canvas), and then in 2010, I embarked on the creative journey creating Symphonies of Geometry through more than seven years, presenting them in my exhibition at Galleri NordNorge in Harstad in 2017.
