Magnar Moen works with drawing. His materials are charcoal, coal dust, soot and graphite. The drawings are developed through various processes. When coincidences happen, he takes care to implement them in his works. Thus giving quirky events the opportunity to transform into personal experiences and new sensations.
Moen is attracted by charcoal as material. It´s transparency, flexibility and homogeneous colour make drawing an immediate language that requires his attention and presence.
Drawing reflects the basics of existence; action and perception. The simplicity and flexibility of it makes it a unique tool for obtaining visual experiences. When Moen works, he focuses on the encounter of the strokes with the paper surface. He draws intuitively and is inspired by the interaction between charcoal and paper.
Moen wants his drawings to be places open to subjective interpretations. In his works both the pleasurable and disastrous may be present.
