I am using natural dyes and colours from plants in an extended and experimental form to understand communications between human, plants and animals. I blur the boundaries between art, science and philosophy, creating biochemical natural colour processes. Interdisciplinary art projects highlighting the environmental sensitivities, water quality and sustainability.

Whose water are you?

Water is a life essential element that is complex and dynamic in structure. Something provided by nature that is pure and clean, but neglected by us becoming unclean and polluted. Our negligence can continue unnoticed, as the pollution remains invisible.

 

The visualised water and naturally occuring biochemical colour pigment processes provide clues, indications of the geographical location and environmental health. Living space-related processes that create a life of colour change, metamorphosis and transforms over time, from one form to another form. These processes show both the inside and outside of a changeable life, the sensitiveness of our ecosystem and the humans existence and its volatile character changes.

 

This is a continuing exhibition within the water theme to highlight the eco-sensitivities of our fresh water sources – it has been exhibited amongst others:-
Blå Stället Art Hall Angered (current) 2016

Skövde Art Museum 2015/16 (pictured here)

Jyväskylä Art Museum Finland 2013
Kuusisto Art Manor Finland 2013
Linnéträdgården Uppsala 2011

 

The water for these exhibitions has been collected from the surrounding environments- lake, river, snow, rain, ground and tap water. Collected together with the local communities. Some of the different waters have been analyzed at Uppsala University.
