About the work: «HEI GRETE!»
Within all education in the arts lie the tension between theory and practice. The science of the dolor phenomena can largely be learned by reading, and treated theoretically. It is when these phenomena express themselves on surfaces, objects and spaces, that they come to life and become a tool for expression. The first time I saw «HEI GRETE!» The color elements were some organized, some still scattered across the floor in the atrium at KHIB, and I had a four story birds eye view over the surface. Anne and Merete were crawling around in this orgy of possibilities, and ordered, organized, fixed, discussed, and reflected. I had long since noticed their curiosity for relationship and effects between colors, and their discovery of the possibilities of the geometrical patterning.
What an awesome delight to see it come to fruition! One can use many a theoretical expression to express what takes place in a surface like this, but primarily one can let themselves get captivated by all the eye can discover of variations, movements and different relations between the shapes. The link between joy of discovery, impulsive actions, reflection and great work capacity comes to its dynamical expression in the fantastistical surfaces of Anne and Merete.
