BFA Examination project: Omöjligt att Minnas, 2009

”Omöjligt att minnas, I”, olja på duk, 200 x 150 cm, 2009.

The four paintings are titled ”Omöjligt att minnas, I-IV”, translated ”Impossible to Remember” and was my BFA examinations project at Umeå Konsthögskola. I had made an exchange semester to Parsons New School of Design and was very influenced by abstract American painting; the abstract expressionism, the colorfield painters and contemporary American painting. I wanted to create large scale works that included the bodies gestures, both small gestures and large, expressive gestures. The four paintings are all painted in many layers of both thin and thick oil paint, representing our memories, that fades and replaces each other. Memory is illusive and can suddenly appear just when we though we lost them, never quite gone yet never quite clear.
