Because art > white walls.
I examine and experiment with life as part of my artistic practise and search for knowledge.
My work witnesses the eternal return of the real in which bodies are murdered, cannibalised, shaped, altered and manipulated in a seemingly unstoppable process.
Our work for Absolut Art links the manufactured authenticity of pre-packaged travel experiences with the hallucinatory escape of a drug user.
I think of my practise as painting in an expansive sense, which involves a deep relationship between architecture, the object and the body of the viewer.
My collages for Absolut Art are connected to a series of works that I completed previously. They relate to postmodern dance, music and the discourse of body politics.
My series of paper cut-outs can be seen as an attempt to build bridges between art and architecture.
My ultimate goal is to reveal the reasoning structure of my own consciousness, and identify my own implicit associations and assumptions.
The subjects of my imagery are less significant than my wish to prompt a deeper sense of reflection, a grasp of the intangible, or a glimpse of the other.
Creating tension between space and objects is crucial to my practise, as I hope to show the close relationship between material and immaterial realities.
I think of my work for Absolut Art as a type of 21st century pop art– one where there’s nothing in the windows and the shops are all closed.
My approach is not a constructive one, but rather a responsive one. I react to the world around me.
Art is an integral part of one's life and should be used like a tool. The better you can use it, the better the art.
I think the thing that’s kept me here all this time is that I can’t quite put my finger on what’s keeping me here. It’s that sense of not knowing that keeps drawing me back to the city.
For my submission, I was interested in the compression of information, which mirrors the compressed layers of material and chemicals in the folding handheld fan.
Though the meaning of Gertrude Stein’s text is open-ended, I am assuming that the use of the word fire in this piece has to with sex. I think that's fairly obvious.
Los Angeles allows me to stay true to my core beliefs and to live life as I prefer, whilst also allowing me to continually transform myself.
I aim to exaggerate and provide a sense of movement in all of my work, with nuances in line and splashes of colour.
The toxic orange in my submission for Absolut Art references the explosive power of coal, and the haze left in its wake.
I hope to ignite universal, primal responses that transcend language, location, and time.
Asking us why we choose to live in Los Angeles is like asking a bird why it lives in the sky. Birds don’t live in the sky. We simply grew up, met each other and have our studios here.
I have stayed in Los Angeles due to the strength of its art schools, the quality discussion amongst my peers, the space for experimentation and the engaging level of critical discourse around art and photography.
I like to think about the complicated journey that objects must have taken to arrive together on a yard sale table.
In our images, the performer embodies a plastic, heroic strength while maintaining a vulnerable, human quality.
My work is full of unlikely visual rhythms. It creates and provokes with aesthetic force.
My work entails an unusual number of ingredients, often found in the natural world and disaster survival kits.
I like to juxtapose the mundane with the mythical. And in doing so, I blend real personal experiences with invented memories.
I am interested in the materiality of the domestic experience, and especially in discarded goods.
Saldert is a true artist and when I saw his work I immediately knew we would create magic together.
Art has a language of it’s own. It speaks to us in perhaps greater depths than we are used to, especially if it’s a bit unexpected.
Artistry is a profession that is closely linked to who you are as a person.
There’s a creative force between myself and Alex: together, our left-of-field ideas have really taken shape. I wanted to be able to really show people what was in my head when it came to this music.
I think the meaning of art is to make a statement. It’s important that someone makes a statement.
As a photographer I choose to let the drama remain subtle, and the action always takes place outside the frame.
I want people to be seduced by my artworks, but also to find a resistance in them.
I chose these six photographs for their lightness and calm. Six landscapes that collect the feeling of the time we live in, a time document.
For me painting is a way of expose my deeply intuitive maneuvers to careful analysis.
Considering that Sweden is a fairly small country, I think the art scene is good and surprisingly big.
I wanted to explore how people in a posh upper class residential neighborhood reacted on street art that they also could relate to
