Because it was widely available, Yellow ochre pigment was one of the first colors used in art. The Lascaux cave in France has a painting of a yellow horse 17,000 years old. Ochre and orpiment pigments were used to represent gold and skin color in Egyptian tombs, then in the murals in Roman villas. The painter Vincent van Gogh was a particular admirer of the color yellow, the color of sunshine. Writing to his sister from the south of France in 1888, he wrote, “Now we are having beautiful warm, windless weather that is very beneficial to me. The sun, a light that for lack of a better word I can only call yellow, bright sulfur yellow, pale lemon gold. How beautiful yellow is!”
Dayroom is a tone of yellow that was very popular during the Regency period (1820) in England.

My abstract paintings are a personal expression of my fascination for colours and forms, the northern light and the southern brightness. Rhythm, harmony and textures are important in the paintings that I make. Every painting starts with a picture in my mind, inspired by a text, a poem, some lyrics from a song or an opera, a dream I had, my fascination for other forms of art like ballet, the sky and its unique and ever changing design. I put on some music, often my brother’s and the colours pop up. Every note, every word, every thought is a colour.
Ever since I was a child, I have always seen colours in everything. It is my way to translate what I hear, read, taste, feel, smell or see. In every corner of my life there is a colour or a nuance. Colours are my way to understand the world.
When the music is on, I enter a very singular world of colours that I only leave when the painting is finished. I bring all the colours together in order to create a harmonious landscape with rhythm and deepness, darkness and lightness.
I use dry pastel with pure pigments, that I crush, smash and smear on the canvas, with my fingers and hands, kneeling on the floor, feeling the textures: it is a very physical way of painting. The multiple layers create new combinations and collisions, the light appears or disappears like a cloudy sky, a dream landscape, an ethereal world.
The paintings include fragments from the past, my dreams and my imagination mixed with images from my life, translated from my emotions. I use fragments of the past and the present. The paintings have an old and well known imagery, sometimes they are organic, trying to get into the deepness of the soul, sometimes they are spiritual, celestial, dreamful and romantic. I create images that question the spectator and invite him to take part of an immaterial world, filled with serenity, existentialism and poetry; a personal interpretation of abstract expressionism and color field painting.
My paintings are only made of pigments from the dry pastels I use. Texture, surface treatments and colour are very important aspects of my work. I want each painting to have a very profound and captivating presence.The goal is to create a compelling work of abstract art by which the viewer feels endlessly absorbed in order to generate a meaningful dialogue.
My work is faithful to what I am : an original match between the colourful and sensitive way of decorating Swedish homes and a spiritual and abstract French piece of art.
