Throughout my life I have painted man in various symbolic versions and
always with similar meaning. That is, man and his life and nind, his feelings
and suffering. These are questions that people have always considered, and I
want to describe my feelings about existentialism in my art. The nudity in my
paintings is symbolic and there is nothing in common with worldly desires.
There are no material things in the spaces where my characters are located. I
describe expressions and connections with human emotions in our psychic worlds.
Worlds where there is sensitivity, love, empathy and boundless understanding
My paintings are well connected with the music I listen to while painting. I meditative process my mind before I creating a new painting. I can't paint anything without music. I need to find “right song” and listen to the same song many hours when creating a new painting. Sometimes my paintings are inspired by dreams and sometimes the subject depicts of an old mythology that speaks to me. My paintings are living and communicate a strong energy of emotions and feelings, which are aimed to emerging the viewer. Additional expression builds through thick texture and large format. This is my painting style. My characters are often idealistic; it is also part of my message because they are symbolic creations of our mental experiences.
The human has been described as an image of the godlike being with divine energy, which today have been elapsed and anesthetized by commercialism. My paintings are meant to arouse your "divine energies", so that you will open up emotions and senses. That you would see the metaphysical reality that surrounds us and let you become sensitive to the world that surrounds us, the free world.
My images sometimes come from a dream; dreams reflect our feelings and sensibilities. The message I communicate is "wake up, become more sensitive, feel beauty". There’s nothing in my paintings that I associate with material life, with worldly life, I associate for example hair and gender with worldly life. My characters have been deprived of these attributes, they have no gender, no hair and this because they don’t express worldly desires. My characters are symbolic beings from the world of feelings and emotions. You can imagine that they come from the dimension of our psyche and perceptions. Characters which I sometimes search for in ancient mythologies, at that time people deeply believed. Essence as “Hyllemor” (tree guardian from the Norse mythology) lived in symbiosis with nature and supervised man so he doesn’t lose his true purpose of his existence
My art is not made of nothing; I prepare every topic for a long time. Looking for inspiration in old mythologies as the Vedas, legends, dreams and premonitions. I carefully plans the symbolism and the way to carry what I wants to say to the viewer. My characters are deeply coalesced in the psyche of the viewer, they emanate strong energy that awake reflection on the meaning of life.
It is an energetic bond and if a sensitive person view my painting he immediately senses the connection with the analysis of the human mind, which my paintings communicate. I don't create commercial art, My art are emotional signals calling for changes in our lifestyle. I want people to become more sensitive, to be guided by love and selflessness. That people would begin to notice a dying world and feel empathy for others.
