Final Drawings is a series of artworks made in wood with hand-made cut-outs. The works are results of a process where all possibilities of hesitation are removed. Drawing with a technique that prevents you from correcting, erasing or even stopping for a moment creates a tension and a special focus in the present moment. What is drawn can not be undone. The first draft becomes the final drawing.

Each artwork requires time and dedication. First the wood is painted/treated with wood stain in several layers for the right colour effect and then protected with enamel paint. Organic patterns are cut by hand with a wood router in one go directly into laminated, oiled or painted wood boards. The edges of the pattern is then filed by hand for a nice finish and a thin wood frame is attached. Et voilá - something unique is made.
