PATTERNS – IMAGES OF CHINA
A series of photopolymer gravures based on photos from China.
Like a geometric pattern you see the overall system, yet each part has an autonomy on its own.
The systematics of my works is a play with geometric abstraction; a method of comprehending China and Chinese culture seen with western eyes.
I am fascinated by the traditional Chinese lattice patterns seen in doorways and window sections and in gardens where sceneries are beautifully displayed through lattice fences. These arranged views that accentuate the relation between a distant and a close perspective are deeply rooted in Chinese culture and philosophy.
Works shown at Gallery Grafik i Väst, Gothenburg, Sweden 2017 and IMPACT 10, Spain 2018.
