Collection: Gunnar Lidén

Painter who seeks an abstract expression with shapes, colors and patterns that set the viewer's imagination in motion. The background as a priest in the Church of Sweden is often included in the image's expression as interpretations of life without pointers. Several books have also come from Gunnar's pen. A painting often begins with a line and a scratch on the canvas. Several layers are added and quite soon a movement appears on the canvas which becomes a composition with directions and relationships. The painting ceases to be representational and becomes a poetic story about something that lies outside the painting itself or beneath the color and shapes.
