work in progress


I'm having a small exhibit with only screen prints in March 2015 … and thought I had plenty of time. But it turned out that the gallery wanted an image for the invitation already by the end of October! So now I just dive straight into it!

working on my artist statement

I found a shortcut, so now I don't have to write my artists statement myself! I solved it with the help of the arty bullocks generator.

Should I go for:

My work explores the relationship between gender politics and romance tourism.
With influences as diverse as Caravaggio and Joni Mitchell, new synergies are manufactured from both traditional and modern structures.
Ever since I was a student I have been fascinated by the ephemeral nature of the human condition. What starts out as vision soon becomes corroded into a dialectic of defeat, leaving only a sense of decadence and the possibility of a new beginning. As momentary phenomena become reconfigured through boundaried and personal practice, the viewer is left with an insight into the possibilities of our era.

or 

My work explores the relationship between the body and midlife subcultures.
With influences as diverse as Kafka and Roy Lichtenstein, new insights are crafted from both opaque and transparent textures.
Ever since I was a teenager I have been fascinated by the theoretical limits of the moment. What starts out as contemplation soon becomes manipulated into a cacophony of distress, leaving only a sense of dread and the possibility of a new reality. As shimmering replicas become frozen through frantic and personal practice, the viewer is left with an insight into the inaccuracies of our existence.

not just pink

sometimes it might seem like I'm just working in pink, but the truth is that recently I've gotten more black, white and grayish.

I'm still very busy getting photos ready for my websites… (why does it have to take so much time?)

documenting the finished rug(s)

I'm finally working on my new websites. I'm very happy about finally getting there, but it sure takes time! Not only do I have to take a lot of decisions, I also have to retake some older photos I'm not so pleased with.

- and then I have to take photos of my new work too, of course!

the summerhouse, Danielsgården in Bingsjö

In the summerhouse, the smaller house at Danielsgården, Winter Carl Hansson painted Dalecarlian wallpaintings in 1799 and 1801. This version of the stairs of the ages is his most famous painting.  Winter Carl Hansson was one of the most renowned Dalecarlian painters. Around 1850 they put wallpapers on top of the wallpaintings (which were no longer fashionable), something that helped keeping the wallpaintings more or less intact. Later Carl Larsson came here and made some paintings of the interiors where you can see these paintings in the background.    

the Swedish king of that time is guarding the entrance.

Winter Carl Hansson also painted the ceilings
