[ Tillstånd ]  State & permission / a comment on my exhibition at Sander gallery Linköping

Since the mid sixties, I have worked with images.

In three years, I can celebrate 50 years as an artist.

No one is more surprised above this than myself.

For it is only in retrospect that things become clearer – some are

smaller now, others disappear, some have never happened

– the importance shows up when one continues.

 

My themes in all these years have been few, and eventually

only one: the poetic, the indeterminable, that which unapprovable

exists in the interstices, between the physical existence and

the ability to imagine the other.

This third, which – I think – is the biggest part of our lives;

that which we can try to rewrite, using the language’s infinite

veil, doing pictures or use eloquent silence.

The driving force is a search for the essence – an essence that

we know is something indeterminate at its core.

Every time I thought – now, now I know, and also what to do

it has eluded me again. It was rare that I succeeded in my intentions –

not this time, but next time, perhaps …

Go and see my paintings and drawings of the interstices

in their present shape.

… in september 2001 I started painting again caused by a private crisis. At that same time the terrible attack made me and all people around nearly speechless.  One was at the same place as before but reality and it´s perception turned into a kaleidoscopical way. During this time I made these paintings.
