The drawings are raw and simple and are found in a prestudied organic flow of color. I have randomly painted on thick paper and later tried to see figures out of the paintet shapes.

The process is an intuitive dialog between me and the surface of the paint. The symbols come to me without a strain or fight and I add whatever comes to mind and fits. I use these symbols to make a vocabulary and they help me to construct my paintings.

This series is in total 164 pictures and each picture measures 12 x 17 cm. Every picture concerns one poem in Havamál.
