Down By Petra Eriksson

Editions: 25 Size: 40×30 cm Technique: Print Editions: 25 Size: 40×30 cm Technique: Print Editions: 25 Size: 40×30 cm Technique: Print About the piece Down  is part of a series that is in some ways thematical, even though the works were not originally created as a series. The foundation for all of the piece is a fascination for creating portraits, primarily since the will and need to depict ourselves seems to have had an important roll for people during all times. All old portraits of kings and rich merchants might feel outdated, yet at the same time we live in the age of the selfie. There’s also something interesting with the way that adjustments of tiny details in the face can change the expression completely and through that also change the story which the image is telling. This piece, as well as the complete series, is created with the will of portraying some sort of melancholy that moles inside. The kind of feeling that makes you wanna shut out the whole world for a while by hiding under a thick blanket or simply shutting your eyes and hope that everything will be better once you open them again. Eriksson thinks that this is something that a lot of us has felt during the history that’s taken place in Sweden and over the rest of the world during this recent year.  is part of a series that is in some ways thematical, even though the works were not originally created as a series.

She started to combine her series with the series into a new project, with a new muze. About the projects and Why I left Adam. Skin – l onging to learn to embrace the skin Theunissen lives in, she started photographing the skin of others. After having felt insecure and unwilling to accept who she was so often in her life, she wanted to feel connected to the flaws and the weaknesses of the girls she photographed, in the same way she experienced her own. It’s about peeling back the layers, exposing something deeply intimate and true.  Why I left Adam- a fter eight years of living in Amsterdam Theunissen started missing the woods, the quiet and the smells of the earth. On January 1st, 2015, she moved back to nature, the environment that inspires her the most. About the artist Berber Theunissen (b. 1989) lives and works in Amsterdam. Theunissen focuses her camera on things that affect her personally. Things that she love, but also things that make her feel vulnerable. She captures moments, feelings and memories of intense emotional value to her, or to the people around her. Her photographs are reflections of the memories in her mind. Theunissen takes photographs because she wants to preserve what is otherwise lost forever; time. Photography helps her create a sense of peace within her own chaotic being. She is obsessed with this thing called life, this absurd, all-consuming life, from the highs to the lows and every little thing in between. Obsessed with all the different kinds of moods and vibes we experience, day in, day out. Even the little things can cause an emotional rollercoaster of tears and laughter. We can understand some of these experiences, but others offer us no clue. She is infinitely curious about how to cope – as a human being, physically and mentally, as a person, as a girlfriend. Feeling so small in an universe so big.Read more

Papaya By Maria Pohl

Editions: 15 Size: 42×29,7 cm Technique: Print About the artist Maria Pohl (b. 1988) is a psychologist and artist. She studied at Lunnevads Art College and the Valand Academy. Pohl has a passion for theoretical books by philosophers and psychoanalysts, and will probably dedicate herself full time to their study in the future. She writes poems and organizes seminars and concerts in her apartment. As an artist, Pohl values colour selection and the emotionally charged. There are two threads running through Pohl’s creative process: the physical present and the world of ideas. While painting she expresses this through flow and colours, inspired by the interaction of spontaneity and precision. Much of Pohl’s thinking away from her brushes informs the motives and themes she choses to paint. She finds great inspiration in the psychological: relations and reaction. Emotions are important, the dynamics between them and the complexity of our interactions Increasingly, Pohl is experimenting with more modern and abstract forms, which can be seen in some of her works. Primarily Pohl is inspired by art that was created in the first half of the 20th century. She likes the simple expression of Matisse, the colour selection of Gauguin and the ingenuity of Picasso. She is also inspired by books and poetry, particularly the meditative musings of Woolf and the earnest nature of Sachs.Read more
