This pastel dream has lots of greatness to look at: gradient colours are hand-painted into a graphic grid while an abstract pattern is cut into the wood revealing the pine plywood underneath. The entire artwork is made entirely out of wood. 

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. Organic patterns are cut by hand with a wood router in one go directly into the painted wood board. The edges of the pattern is then filed by hand for a nice finish and a thin wood frame is attached.
