paper tattoo by jacob dahlstrup

untitled. 65cmx50cm paper. 2010

danish artist jacob dahlstrup uses a tattooing machine like a pen on heavy water color paper and creates a three-dimensional line. after sketching a skull and flowers with an ordinary pencil, he goes over the lines with a tattoo needle.

‘key to my practice is a process of calculated spontaneity and pre-planned coincidence through which I work primarily with a combination of drawing and installation. through merging of material and context I explore the visual language of nautical folklore, which tells the story of faith, hope, love, and the struggle to get to the non-existing point in the horizon’. J.D.
