My work revolves around one theme:
The landscape from my native Sweden.
This landscape appears in various guises in my work, the most famous are the abstract paintings which are divided into squares. The creative process is revealed in diptychs consisting of a figurative canvas, a literal rendering of a landscape and an abstract canvas, where the characteristic grid represent the image. In other works I combines both figurative and abstract elements in a single painting. My way of switching between figuration and abstraction is a process that take place within my work.
