This is a digital edition of my painting Lost Knight from a series of four paintings called Circles. Circles was first presented as a virtual exhibition in regards to the COVID-19 pandemic. The whole series including the gallery and soundtrack were tokenized as a whole experience and now the works are made here as individually collectable NFT's.

Circles is a series of four abstract paintings which are based heavily on color experience. With each painting I have been working with one of four themes of the series; loss, letting go, new beginnings and new meanings. I had a very ritualistic approach to the process of painting and there is a strong spiritual and conceptual side to it. I've used paint differently with each piece reflecting on the themes i was working with. The paints themselves I mixed by hand from raw pigments, which for me represented taking ownership of personal experience, that was to be transformed into something shareable and healing. In my mind these paintings make certain kind of archetypes -or giants, as i sometimes like to call them, which together create a tacit story arc.

Lost Knight is the first painting of the series, as the name suggests it deals with loss. It can be about any kind, but this is especially intended as offering of condolences for those who have lost people during the pandemic. Grief is always uniquely individual, but i wanted to try to make something to emphatize with it, as it seemed it often gets dismissed behind the headlines. The work is founded on my own mourning experience, created a year after my fathers passing. In many ways he was the lost knight. Odds in life were against him and even though in his time he tried, he could not always be the father he wanted to be or one that i needed. While we did get a long, what was lost besides a man was potential and hope of true reconciliation.
