I work mainly with painting, but also sometimes with graphics and illustrations. My paintings revolve around a number of themes which it usually is about stories and tales. My image moves among other things whether it; times we do not own themselves, Illusions, and explorations, which is a collaboration with Mattias Alenius researching the memory cell.
My paintings are an attempt by the shapes, lines, and movements. I'm looking shapes in the scene, breaking up happy figurative, sometimes leading to the paintings become more abstract.
DISTANCES / MOVING / INTIMACY In movement, in time, in space and in mind. But also in shapes, surfaces and colour. To be changing but at the same time being secure. One surface against another, a shape that turns through an incident just as movements in life affect each other. While we are closer than ever to those physically far from us, it is also possible to distance ourselves from the people nearest to us. Through our different touch points we can follow the every day lives of our far away friends without having to be an active part in them. At the same time this can make us estrange ourselves from those closest to us but enable socialising at a distance. Where a look meets someone’s back, a greeting meets a nod and an intimate secret is stored in the cloud. A longing for intimacy can in thoughts and actions lead us closer to each other.
