"Layers of Landscape" is a series of graphic prints installed in transparent acrylic boxes. Different variations of the same motif are layered on top of each other and only the top layer is visible, while the contours of the paper’s handmade edges render a depth to the image.

The motifs are Greenlandic landscapes. Wooden houses, droppings, mountains, sky and water merge together in almost invisible transitional gradients.

Close-up images of plants become their own abstract landscapes.

Color photogravure consists of prints in several colors, one color per printing process with a different plate for each color. In the handheld process the patterns move around the precise photograph to create unique graphic expressions with offsets, texture and small mistakes.

All works are printed during a residency at Statens Værksteder for Kunst / Danish Art Workshops.
