Collection: Caroline Ohlsson

Caroline's art has a very special expression that she has developed over many years of hard work. An interesting feature of her art is the predilection for patterns in all possible and impossible combinations that form a grid of colors, lines and shapes. They feel Scandinavian and contemporary in a way, while giving clear associations to Eastern pattern work or intricate Renaissance iconography. She does not hesitate to search far back in art history for ideas. Caroline has studied child portraits painted by the 17th century Spanish artist Diego Velázquez.
