paintings from 2013

These acrylic paintings I made for the exhibition, I Want To Hold Your Hand, at Borås Art Museum, celebrating 50 years of  Pop music. I called them "One Hit Wonders", since I reduced the painting act to one hit, one splash of paint, one chance for a wonder to occur. I also had psychelic lightshows in mind.

painting 60x60 cm



I used to cook in a Waldorf kindergarten. A safe, cosy and predictable life in prison. Many were the days when my eyes and thoughts wandered off into the enchanting landscapes of foam, grease and peelings, following their whirling paths as they slowly escaped down the drain. The way out.




In the remains of a marriage, kids flown out and everything´s falling, needs repair and my rooms are stuffed with discarded art that no one ever asked for and left over building material, mould and trash, I start to recycle.
The purposes, the plans, the dreams that never became, will get a new chance in a new shape.
