Collection: CFDahl

CFDahl has his roots in Hällevik and Sölvesborg in Blekinge and took an early interest in abstract painting, an interest and passion that was encouraged by the art teacher in elementary school, Rolf Palvén.

After art training at Österlen's art school in Simrishamn and photography school in Lund, CFDahl worked as a photo assistant for fashion and advertising photographers in Malmö, before starting his own business as a freelance photographer. At the end of the 1990s, he resumed painting in earnest and brought with him clear photo-technical influences to the art of painting.

Characteristically, CFDahl creates in a borderland - between photography and painting, abstract and concrete, dreams and reality. He works thematically with a mix of media and works to create an exciting, multidimensional image, where details in the photograph can be glimpsed in an abstract movement from the painting. The media together provide a ephemeral form, where the figurative in the photograph is loosened up, while at the same time giving clear figures to the abstract whole. CFDahl often returns to memories, longings and dreams in his art. There is something abstract and intangible in these states that interests. CFDahl is fascinated by the unclear and wants to capture the fleeting.
