Fredrik Flink , painter. Sweden
Fredrik Flink Fredrik Flink Fredrik Flink
My name is Fredrik Flink live in southern parts in Sweden. I have recently come to realize that it is about time to let other people, except from my family and friends, take part of my work of art. I have reached a point in my life, where I can dedicate more time to my art and I am now ready to reach out to galleries and other people interested in my artwork, in other words I am ready to reach a wider audience.
I believe genuine and true feelings surrounding art is in the eye (mind) of the beholder. The purpose of art is to create interest and generate feelings within the beholder. In my paintings, I like to mix motives of the human inner (and outer) nature with motives external to the human body and mind and the reality in which we live.

Jenny Stake , painter. Sweden
Jenny Stake Jenny Stake Jenny Stake
"My ambition is to create art that concern, questioning and extends beyond the borders of logic. I believe that the viewer itself always creates its own motives when he or she interprets a picture depending on the experiences, experience and attitude to life he has. Thus the viewer is also a large part in creating a work of art.
Although my motives vary, the recurring theme in all the paintings the opportunity to discover more than was at first glance looks. To call for confrontation against himself.
To touch on a personal level. To steal a few extra seconds."
Barbro Ridderlöf , painter. Sweden
Barbro Ridderlöf Barbro Ridderlöf Barbro Ridderlöf
I have since childhood signed and painted a lot. I also have for many years expressed to me by textile embroidery and weaving. I have a strong need to express myself in the picture.
In the mid-1990s, I found my real expression - to paint in oil on canvas.
The reasons are often drawn from the Stockholm Archipelago, with much feeling of lush natural water and mirrors. Sometimes the motives inspired by old photos from the album or memory collage of episodes from the life. Many reasons have been a women's figure as observers or in the centre of the picture with symbols around the shape of birds, dragonflies and plants in sweeping decorative forms. I like to paint old barns and sjöbodar who has a history and soul.
To get to experiment with varying dagrar is exciting to get the right mood in the picture.
I paint imaging with layers of color and many times with contrasts of retracted fantasy images. The colors and light are important in the pictures as well as the whole picture rhythm and disposition. In the pictures, I want to get a subpoena, a moment or a beautiful view.
Is also autodidact with strong artistic påbrå within the family.
To touch on a personal level. To steal a few extra seconds. "

Gunilla Rentzing, painter. Sweden
Gunilla Rentzing Gunilla Rentzing Gunilla Rentzing
I work mainly with oil and water colours but I do also paint on driftwood, polished and formed by the sea. I paint out of sheer curiosity and lust to explore the possibilities offered by the different languages of art.
The butterfly often presents itself in my paintings – not every time though. It early became a symbol for my view on life and life’s meaning.
The butterfly, with its splendid transformation from larva – almost repulsive – to cocoon, the tranquility and contemplation in life and onward to its final unfolding into a never ending diversity of beauty, freedom and comeliness.
A wonder of metamorphosis.

Kate Hellqvist , painter. Sweden
Kate Hellqvist Kate Hellqvist Kate Hellqvist
An incurable desire to paint has followed me since childhood. For many years, is music and singing my big inspiration. Since I have known synestetisk ability, each tonne of their own color value and each voice its own color scale.
Before I begin a painting I listen actively to a musical piece for a long time, between 1 to 3 months, before I grips my brushes and fill them with color.
Until growing unique motifs with exciting color and design.
Trips both in Sweden and Denmark, Norway, France, England, Switzerland, Spain, Greece, Italy, Lithuania and the United States have enriched my knowledge of painting. I have always been fascinated by the play between light and darkness and the tension that exists between them.
My paintings are, to my great delight, represented in many homes, businesses and institutions today.
In this tough, hard and wounded world we live in the 2000's, I would like my painting, which is natural lyricism with elements of surrealism and symbolism, interpret the bright and good forces still exist and gives us joy, playfulness, vitality and harmony .

About my expression and on the topics that interest me:
I mainly express myself through painting, but also work with the drawing. Use the figurative expression, a form of "realism", and tries through this, among other things, to communicate something about human life, relationships, loneliness, loss and longings. Time and transformation of the past. It concerns me especially now for the time relationships within the family; the apparent idyll, enclosed space, the unsaid.

Karl-Gustaf Hellqvist , photographer. Sweden
Karl-Gustaf Hellqvist Karl-Gustaf Hellqvist Karl-Gustaf Hellqvist
Photographic history and philosophy.
Photography has accompanied me all since my early teens. At first as a hobby, but later as a profession, comprising studio photography and externally comissioned photography.
Alongside with my professional work, I allways kept my personal photography going.
After more than 40 years in photography, I nowadays mostly work with personal projects for my own picture archive.
I specialize in black and white photography, based on traditional film and photographic paper for the wet darkroom. Nature is, and has allways been, an important source of inspiration to me. Details, forms and light playing on the surface of water, just where it meets the solid ground,
can give you unimagined possibilities for pictures.
To come to a stop, and just regard and listen to my closest surrounding when I am out in the woods, can give me a philosophic peace of mind that opens up my visual sence.
Everyday life is another important choice of subject to me. By working with both visual and technical care, the future added historical value could be substantial.
To take a photograph in itself is only the beginning of the image creating process. When in the dim, red light of the darkroom, I am able to form an image with the help of an enlarger,
I can experience a feeling for the picture that I have never been able to achieve in front of the screen of a computer. My own visual sence is best released, when I have only the lightrays between my photographic negative and the final image.

Since then I specializes in advertising and commercial photopraphy, and now I am working more time with photography as art”.
“Immediately my pictures may describe the past, but I want to express more. The people and the animals in my art give me a deep respect for who they are and what they are.
When I meet my objects I feel privileged to be a photographer that can catch the moment”.

Per Fernhagen , painter. Sweden
Per Fernhagen Per Fernhagen Per Fernhagen
Per Fernhagen, Born in Örebro, Sweden, 1957.
Living in Varberg, working in his own studio by the ocean.
The motives span from the amazing scenery of the Swedish West Coast and the dramatic dynamics of the Northern mountains to his most personal interpretations of current world events.
His art isn't restricted to any genre or technique, but instead his curiosity and lust for experimentation results in oil, acrylic, pastel or water-colour paintings - all depending on the motif.
"The fascination in my painting is the result of the motif itself, since it demands such flexibility as the very scenery changes rapidly; its shape, its light and its colours. It's a true challenge to catch the short moment in my studies of nature and recreate the inherent feeling of it.

Marieke Russel , sculptor-painter. Netherland
Marieke Russe Marieke Russel Marieke Russel

Inspired by her love of dance, puppetry and theatre, Marieke Russel’s art invokes wholly original worlds through an impressively wide variety of media, including delicate bronze sculptures, tapestries, marionettes, dolls and domestic furnishings.
A pastoral theme suffuses her work, evoking images of the forest as a place of childhood mystery.
She also forges a strong link between the visual and tactile arts and fables, folktales and myths.
The use of winged creatures as symbols of hope is pervasive, as is the mythology of motherhood, family, birth and accepting the inevitability of death, all presented as experiences which bear the
supernatural in them. Angels, as well as dragonflies with human bodies, are foundations in her work, as representatives of hope as well as melancholy.
Despite her work’s consistent themes of the otherworldly and the ethereal, however, Marieke’s sensitive reappraisal of this realm also speaks to its implications for those of us in the material world. Marieke is not a fantasist, but an artist who brings primal emotions to the surface via the content of myth, fable and the tumult of childhood. She re-tells ancient stories and presents them to us afresh. Through the pathos of innocence, as well as with a generous understanding of the human condition, Marieke Russel speaks to us from the other side.
Marieke was a student at the school of arts in Maastricht. Ever since, she exhibited her work at several gallery’s in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. In January 2009 she exhibited at the Agora Gallery in New York. In her home-town, Stein, she was honored to receive a culture award.

Angela Bogaard, painter. Holland
Angela Bogaard Angela Bogaard Angela Bogaard
Practicing artist over 27 years. Professional artist since 1983. I experimented with fresh ideas about the nature of materials and functions of art. Ever since the mid-1980s, I have been engaged conquering and creating my own language in the process. At first glance, my works appear expressive, but they always incorporate social references. The act of painting and the photography/digital art itself is an intuitive process, where emotion and inner communication is a vital element .Communication is universal and splashes through the worlds until the unapproachable. I think that feelings come from the unconsciousness, the impenetrable spirit of each person. I think that art represents the projection of the unconsciousness, giving new forms to ideas with a beginning and with an end. The act of painting and the act of digital art itself is the unexpected keys to enter a new room with an unknown view. The Mental Bridge series is photography/digital art.

Ingela Ullberg Hallonquist, born 1949 in Årsta, living in Stockholm, Sweden.
Watercolor paintings irresistibility lies for me in its unpredictability. The technology will also allow myself to work quickly and intuitively. Watercolor Painting differs from most other techniques by that you rarely get a second chance. But akvarellpigmenten also has an intrinsic beauty that is lacking in other techniques. The chance to play big role in my paintings.
It is rare that I paint totally abstract, but usually
I have a fairly clear picture of what I want to portray in the head when
I begin, but my intention is never to make an image of reality. The painting will live his own life.

When he exhibited at the gallery "A Capella" in Kläppinge on the eastern Öland, he also had a surprise visit from the Swedish nature-loving royal family.
Since the seventies, he is painting full time and work both in oil and watercolor. Göran preferably perform in the wild where he in time of impulse can get inspiration and set the easel. Göran Petersson is a brilliant natural painter, who has an inner feeling and experience that would challenge even great painters such as Bruno Liljefors.

I was born in 1927 and raised in the town of Lund in southern Sweden. In the 60's I lived close to the nature in Bergslagen, the great mining district of Sweden. The forrest and nature inspired me in my art and have continued to do so through the years.
I later moved and since the 70's the Malmö region in the southern Sweden has been my home. For ten years I worked with tapestries on which I captured man at work. Faces inspires me as the inner and outer landscape of the human being. I began painting portraits in the early 80's.
Today I'm mostly trying to capture the social origin of the woman in early cultures and myths.

Lisbeth Engelin Lindh Lisbeth Engelin Lindh Lisbeth Engelin Lindh
Born in Bohuslän. Autodidakt.
First, I started painting at an early age.
My Grandpa taught me much about nature.
Color in, scenic inspiring, made me to want to shape my feelings, with my hands. Then there was the mud agility, movement, scent-expression.
Then came the requirements to stand on its own feet, the training that was closest to Color o Shape, became four-year Hair artist education with journeyman Letters and Crafts Letter to Stock Exchange in Gothenburg.
Longing to devote myself to art grew.
Sculpting became like a thread within me. In the early 80's I came in contact with an artist group in Dalsland and started sculpting. I have always been interested in culture and myths.
I worked with various themes, such as the seasons - the four elements.
Right now I develop further what is happening around us. Tutorials, courses on Gerlesborgs school, with different techniques.

Enisa Ristic, painter. Sweden
Enisa Ristic Enisa Ristic Enisa Ristic
Enisa Ristic, born 1955 in Doboj, Bosnia and Herzegovina, but in 1992 my family and I moved to Sweden and settled in Ronneby.
Formally graduated in economics, but I have always enjoyed painting. 16 years old I began with aquarelles. However my new life in Sweden sparked an artistic renaissance. The paintings are simple with the dramatic effects and in most cases, but unconsciously, they depict flowers and women. Now I am working mainly in oils and aquarelles.
I believe that art can be anything as long as it involves and contains sufficient emotion. I paint in order to express myself to others and give the spectator room for their own interpretation.
