Artist based in Umeå, Northern Sweden.
Ingredients of my practice include existential, philosophical, political and personal queries. However, the physicality and the bodily experience of the work is what is essential: the presence the work claims in the physical space and how it might act in relation to the (body of) the viewer.
I follow the path of the eye- around a piece or a collection of pieces- where it rests and where it is forced to move on. At best the work can instill a sense of vertigo- a throwing off of balance through the layering of paint, through colour, shape, format and composition. Paintings and other objects become devices to draw in and spit out, tickle the mirror neurons and play with the perception of the recipient. The resulting objects can at times seem to assume their own force and agency. It's a visual, visceral game situated in a physical encounter: one that doesn't translate to the screen.
I believe the careful observation of our world, the examining of perception, games of illusion and revelation and the furthering of aesthetic devices are meaningful in an age of fake news and overwhelming distraction.
