artist statement

everyday life, habits, and the shapes and patterns around us are the primary concerns for holger højbjerg. he is appropriating icons and symbols by reproducing them by hand and recognisable symbols gets distorted into other forms which results is an “imperfect” reproduction of the “perfect” images. this creates an interesting tension in the image. often, his works develops out of each other with results in visible overlaps in the imagery. his process is conceptual as he sets up a set dogmas in terms of colour, symbols and so forth, in order to challenge the media.
