The Elusive

The exhibition will still be shown in Malmö with a vernissage on 12 November at 16.00 We will be there for you who want to see the paintings on site.

We will take precautions and keep our distance. At the opening on November 12, we will have a separate entrance directly from Södra Promenaden 69. We only let in a few people at a time, which can mean that you have to wait outside for a while!

Please note that all sales will take place via both for you who come to the gallery and for you who follow us digitally. Warm welcome!

Are we animals or humans? Nowadays it has been understood that man is an animal, let alone some exceptionally well-developed characteristics. These include consciousness, cognitive ability and language. However, these properties are also found in other animals, though less well developed. My great fascination for chimpanzees is based on our similarities and our way of seeing ourselves in them, because as soon as you put a chimpanzee in a human-encoded environment, you stop seeing them as animals and instead start focusing on what we have in common. I usually say that I describe a generation gap in my paintings, between us and the chimpanzees, how they live as part of nature while we live off it, something that is no longer sustainable. You always have to make choices that are not just for today, choosing things that someone else wants to take over when you feel you no longer want it, instead of using the wear and tear culture. Therefore, I have a great fascination for the constant and timeless.
