Beyond the Surface

The exhibition ‘Beyond the Light’ explores and illuminates certain human issues. What hides behind the perfect surface? Nothing is what it appears to be. Is everything we see merely a projection of our own experiences? The exhibition reveals a tense confrontation between two totally different means of expression, on the one hand film and traditional watercolour technique on the other. The films and paintings are inspired by strange and scary events from the artist’s own life and from folk tales of Bohuslän province. The films will be projected in sculptural form, on trunks of wood or red granite for example and on walls.
