“My claim is that everything that I express and show in my work is a part of me. My artistic expression is challenged and developed through work with my self - my person. The paintings are thus a fraction of my being that present an insight into a given time of my life as a mental fingerprint - a mirror.
The finished work is not only a self expressed in an extern form, but more a direct extension of it. It is the ego´s extended surface expressed in abstract forms and patterns. An image of sensed and registrered thought. Looked at this way Håkon Danielsen´s practice also works as a research of the ego and the physical and mental conditions that are not always easy to fathom and acknowledge. Every impulse and sensation describe the moment as it is right now.
