Dag Knudsen has been experimenting with symmetry for over a decade. As an artist, he has had great success with his series of symmetrical animal portraits, Symmetricat, Symmetridog and Symmetrizoo. When asked where Knudsen´s fascination with symmetry and sacred geometry comes from he states: “Nothing in nature is 100% symmetrical. I am intrigued by taking a fraction of something existing and by multiplying this fraction creating another visual entity it is almost like creating a portal to another dimension. The symmetry on the human brain works almost hypnotizing thus creating a new visual atmosphere. During the summer of 2019 Dag attended a 5-week artist residency at Mana Contemporary in New Jersey. Symmetricity is a series he has been working on parallel to his other works and this is a preview of his series.
