I draw inspiration from mythology, nature, esotericism, occultism, science, science fiction,
neurology, religious imagery, transhumanism and posthumanism. I ́m interested in how
our minds color our experience with stories and narratives describing the world around us.
We live in a web of modern myths, narratives, meanings and concepts. The fantastic imagery
used in my works playfully refer to this.
My works mirror the current time, that is driven by rationality, through the means of mythical,
subconscious images, impressions and sensations – creating a nonsensical spiritual imagery
of the late-capitalistic, post-christian, semi-dystopic secular society that tries to find the
meaning it once lost.
My practice has been in a positive change in the last couple of years. Light has been an unifying
factor as a medium, theme and a metaphor in my practice that has otherwise spread to different
medias and experiments. I have also developed a unique technique of light drawing that makes
use of special painting medium and paper. I feel I have found something new in this light drawing
technique that plays with concepts of materiality and surface with even esotheric and spiritual
connotations to it.
In light I´m interested in the affectivity of it, how light seems to attract us humans in an instinctual
way. For me it appears as a fascination towards objects of light, they seem to me in some way
alive. Maybe light attracts us because we are animals of day light and sun, at least until the inven-
tion of the light bulb we were. We know subconsciously that light represents life. And maybe that´s
why there´s this uncanny aspect in artificial light – it mimics the sun but lacks the life.
