Life resembles a ballerina on a tightrope.
In the same way, we sway and seek balance as we move ahead. Crossroads
appear that force us to change our course. We're constantly in transit,
As an artist, I've found that strong emotions and experiences often set
large-scale projects into motion where images flow and evolve into a wide
range of expressions.
Different materials excite me and invite new routes of expression.
Oil, acrylics, and water-colours offer a wide range of effects, and I
enjoy fusing graphics and painting.
In addition to this, I have worked on thematic sculptural installations
and a few short art films.
Music and dance affect me and move me, something that shows in my work,
which reflects a kaleidoscope of colours and swirling motion.
For the past few years, I have taken classes in Astronomy taught by Maria
Sundin at the University of Gothenburg. This has been a tremendous source
of inspiration. Following a lecture I gave at the 2007 Göteborg Science
Festival on the subject "The Universe: The World's Greatest Art Gallery",
I decided to create images of my impressions on mirrors. I realised there
was a strong correlation between X-rays of the body and Outer Space: "Electromagnetic
With these images, I would like to guide us into "Our Inner Universe"
- our brain. And from this microcosm, we will head out to a macrocosm,
our "Outer Universe".
- Unique and unexplored, such is our Inner Universe as well
- Similarities abound between outer space and inner space
- Questions outnumber answers - two mighty mysteries
- Distance does not determine the scope of our knowledge. Our brain is
close at hand, but it defies easy comprehension
- Life has gifted us with amazing twin frontiers: Outer Space, infinite
and Inner Space, our very own personal universe.
Both deserve our attention and care.
