PERSONAL DETAILS AND REFLEXIONS
I am a female Swedish artist, exhibiting internationally, born and working in Gothenburg on the Swedish West Coast.
Painting is my life, but I seldom install my exhibitions with only paintings. Today it is expected that the artist shall lay hands upon the entire exhibition space to create interesting experiences for the visitors.
My hart beats for painting. My works are colorful, expressionistic, and abstract.
I have done sculptures too. One of them installed in the McQuire University Sculpture Parc in Sydney, donated by PH.D. Peter Stanbury. He was an important personality in Australias Art History, and became a dear friend of mine.
I have beautiful memories strolling around in the Blue Mountains with him exploring the Aboriginal cliff carvings, splashing water on them to make them distinct.
I have also made installations to protest against the war. The Gulf Crises was on when I started to exhibit. I made the first installation at Gallery Engelbrekt in Örebro Sweden and the next at the Växjö Art Association.
I got lots of visitors and was well-reviewed, but Sweden was not ready for installations in the early nineties.
