80/20 of Familiar Grounds

GIBCA Extended / Boy Konsthall, 2021


Raw linen canvas is covered with thick layers of paint. The surface is polished and then covered by semi transparent layers of graphite powder, a medium whose material properties register every deviation and unevenness of the surface itself. The process is one of burying and uncovering at the same time.


The exhibition has sprung from the interest in examination methods in restoration and painting conservation, more specifically the cross section microscopy method. A method aiming to retrieve information about a work's history and the artist's practice by analysing microscipic fragments from the painting's surface. 


Imagary of fragments produced during this process look like geological strata - layers of soil, gravel and sediment that provide us with knowledge of geological events. They also resemble mysterious landscapes.

MFA exhibition

KHM Gallery, Malmö 2017

The material conditions—the nature which served as subject for the painters of the forest, Jean-François Millet, Théodore Rousseau, Gustave Courbet, Camille Corot and Narcisse Virgilio Díaz is now conditioning new works in a most physical sense. Raw pigments extracted from vegetation gathered in the Forest of Fontainebleau produce random patterns, imprints and colourations on lengths of linen.


From yellows to brownish greens and reds. From purples to bluish greys and blacks. From violet to vermilion.

Five-leaf oak and linen screen, dyed with leaves from ash, beech, birch, chestnut, maple and acorns gathered in the Forest of Fontainebleau, aluminium sulphate, iron sulphate, sodium carbonate and vinegar.
