Painting by Urban DK, spray on fiberglass – 2001.
Surf is one of the two pieces I did for Skævinge Youth Club in their disco. This is an absolutely classic piece without too much fuss. The idea of letting some of the letters transcend the top and/or the bottom, is something I've previously used in the two pieces Ornament and Stonehedge - plus I've always wanted to create some letters that break through the wall and here was my opportunity.
There's no particular reason for the name Surf, but the after school class didn't make any demands on the decoration, except that they wanted to see the the sketches, so I just had to come up with come something to write. It's not always that easy, I think, when there isn't any specific requirements for a job.
