Collection: Olof Ahlström

A painting that often moves in a direction towards the organic, archaeological and the material. Erosion and stratification processes, degradation and leveling. Fields of formations, captured from controlled but at the same time random processes where painting can take a bigger place, can participate and leave an impression.”
