'Dead Center'

(born 1985 in Köping, SWE)

is a visual artist splitting his time between Gothenburg (Sweden) and Bergen (Norway).

Artist Statement

My artistic practice is a studio-based investigation into the correlation of pop-culture and history, against a backdrop of post-human philosophies. While the movement forward is firmly grounded in painting, recurring elements include collage, assemblage and recycling, all used in both material ways and on an idea-based level. In this wasteland, nothing goes to waste.

In recent paintings and sculptural works I take on the role of landscape architect: The building blocks are collage-based appropriations mostly scavenged from books on art history, nature photography and atlases, alongside industrial found-object scraps. The mortar holding it all together ranges from resin, glue, varnish and beeswax to acrylics, inks and oil paint. My imagery is assembled on an intersection between geography and geometry, one often so over-populated by details that individual parts are forced to give way to a bigger picture.

The driving force behind the works is a resistance to our apparent need for infinite expansion within a finite space. It is an attempt at coming to terms with the chaos of the contemporary by any means necessary. I try to work this into paintings where it can be deciphered and translated into understanding: Through material-based experiments into representation, symbolism and the idea of the hyper-image, I explore new ways out of seemingly closed and self-destructive systems.
