From the studio: a set of wood panels being prepared.
And from the writing desk (for Swedish readers): a reflection, finished in June, about painting with the help of facilitated communication, in relation to texts by Mechtild of Magdeburg, Friedrich Nietzsche and Ludwig Wittgenstein.

For almost three years, I have given much of my attention to Art Lab Gnesta and the Karl Schultz-Köln and Marita Mörck-Schultz Foundation. It has been a lot of work, many encounters, much fun and not so few accomplishments. Here are some of the highlights, from the Art Lab Gnesta website…

However, now it’s time for a change. Parallel with my engagement in Art Lab Gnesta, I have been doing courses, reading and writing. The next semester will find me part-time at the Center for Studies in Practical Knowledge at Södertörn University, and full-time at the Royal Institute of Art – which opens the possibility for me to fully delve/dive into the intuitive and logical learning process. My dear colleagues in the former network of Art Lab Gnesta/Research (which is now likewise independent from Art Lab Gnesta) are still around, a valuable peer-review resource.

To Art Lab Gnesta, and all its crew, I wish the best of luck!

Long time since I published the last posts, but that doesn’t mean work is off. Blogging about my work is a kind of reflection, and since August 2013 I’m doing a lot more of that – reflecting – although in another context; currently, I’m in a two-year programme at the Center for Studies in Practical Knowledge at Södertörn University (Stockholm), which means a lot of reading, writing and discussing. Another part of my time is spent at Art Lab Gnesta.

But then, there’s the studio. It’s always there… Spring light is outside. Inside, it’s warm. Inside, things are waiting.
