Artist based in Umeå, Northern Sweden.
The ingredients fed into my practice are existential, philosophical, political and personal. However, the physicality and the bodily experience of the work is what is essential: the presence the work claims in the space and how it might seem to act in relation to the (body of) the viewer.
I play around with the way the eye moves- around a piece or a collection of pieces- in order to construct what I refer to as a painted eyeball-pinball machine. At best the work can instill a sense of vertigo- a throwing off of balance through the layering of paint, through colour, shape, through format and through careful composition. It should be fitted with the devices to draw in the viewer and spit them out, tickle the mirror neurons and assume its' 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, and the furthering of aesthetic devices are meaningful in an age of fake news and overwhelming distraction.
