|So now I've started screen printing the series of post-it laughters. It has been - and still is - a long process arriving at those final 10 images. All together 3 months full time work I would say… at least.|

The school kids under 13 had the theme "pixelated" and worked in their part of the school. The older ones had the limitation to make their sketches out of coloured paper - in order to simplify - like in the wallpainting projects I've lead the other years.

|I'm having a small exhibit with only screen prints in March 2015 … and thought I had plenty of time. But it turned out that the gallery wanted an image for the invitation already by the end of October! So now I just dive straight into it!|

I found a shortcut, so now I don't have to write my artists statement myself! I solved it with the help of the arty bullocks generator.
Should I go for:
Should I go for:
My work explores the relationship between gender politics and romance tourism.
With influences as diverse as Caravaggio and Joni Mitchell, new synergies are manufactured from both traditional and modern structures.
Ever since I was a student I have been fascinated by the ephemeral nature of the human condition. What starts out as vision soon becomes corroded into a dialectic of defeat, leaving only a sense of decadence and the possibility of a new beginning. As momentary phenomena become reconfigured through boundaried and personal practice, the viewer is left with an insight into the possibilities of our era.
My work explores the relationship between the body and midlife subcultures.
With influences as diverse as Kafka and Roy Lichtenstein, new insights are crafted from both opaque and transparent textures.
Ever since I was a teenager I have been fascinated by the theoretical limits of the moment. What starts out as contemplation soon becomes manipulated into a cacophony of distress, leaving only a sense of dread and the possibility of a new reality. As shimmering replicas become frozen through frantic and personal practice, the viewer is left with an insight into the inaccuracies of our existence.

|In the summerhouse, the smaller house at Danielsgården, Winter Carl Hansson painted Dalecarlian wallpaintings in 1799 and 1801. This version of the stairs of the ages is his most famous painting. Winter Carl Hansson was one of the most renowned Dalecarlian painters. Around 1850 they put wallpapers on top of the wallpaintings (which were no longer fashionable), something that helped keeping the wallpaintings more or less intact. Later Carl Larsson came here and made some paintings of the interiors where you can see these paintings in the background.|

|Me and my family just got back from a two weeks stay in Danielsgården - a historical farmhouse with famous Dalecarlian paintings. Danielsgården is located in the village Bingsjö in Dalarna and the nature is breathtaking. Artists of different kinds can apply for a summer stay with their families - read more here - I highly recommend it!|
more about the Dalecarlian paintings coming up ...

|Now when all the work in the metal workshop is finished I brought the laughters to my studio - to paint them and take photos. They look so different on my white (ok, whitish) floor. At KKV they were inverted.|
