Since my education as a stone sculptor, I have carried around a sketchbook filled with small, abstract drawings that capture how I view the world. Like sifting soil to find gold, my work process starts with going through this sketchbook to pull out any nuggets of inspiration, which become the subjects of my creative vision. To bring life to this vision, I use conventional, easily obtainable materials and work in a meticulously planned manner, always with an eye for detail. The results are abstract pieces that simultaneously celebrate contrast and harmony, tension and resolve—all by accentuating often-forgotten forms in everyday life.
Rugla Swepum | £1400 | 80×51 | Varnish on Aluminium
A new form arises, a shape made from fragments from life contrasts with elements of paradox, broken, unconnected structures. Color sets itself apart from color. Layer lines up with layer. Rugla Swepum.
