Uppsala is an old city about one hour north of Stockholm. It is known for its beautiful cathedral and castle and for all the students (and their parties), but if you are into art and craft Kaleido might also be something that you associate with Uppsala. It is a gallery close to the train station and on September 25, 2021 my exhibition “Repetitions and rhythms” opened there.

For as long as I can remember, I have loved fish. When I was a kid I wished I had gills so I could dive deep below the surface and swim around there. The fish theme has followed me and it has developed in different directions. The scale covered shapes have gone from fish and lizards to cones and birds. In the exhibition at Kaleido I showed both new and older works. The common denominator is the repetitions and rhythms created by the hundreds of small parts that the objects are made of.
