About

Painter situated in Umeå, Sweden. I am inspired by the glitter that mimics the light of nature; forests gleaming in the dark, spider webs glistening in the morning light and water surfaces being broken by glare. I examine the relationship between man made glitter and nature. I collect sections of places and crops the image and the landscape until all that remains is a surface and a structure. In this way, my painting becomes a form of topography, where each image extracts a part of a map where the terrain is unknown, but that might lead me back.
