“My paintings show silent landscapes. The works refer to the dense Swedish nature, beautiful but deserted, uncanny but seductive. Just like in nature, the light and darkness are important elements in the paintings. I paint snow, ice, forests and mountains in this – as I call them – mindscapes, rich in colours under their deep hues of black, white and grey.
I have lived, had my studies, and showed my work, mostly abroad where my work has attracted an extra value of exoticism, something I now would like to deepen and ground whilst moved back in Sweden. In my work I flirt with the Scandinavian national romanticism and post-apocalyptic alienation.”
