Collection: ARCHIPELAGO - here I came.

Photographs taken in Landsort and on the island of Öja in 2012 that have been put together into patterns to enhance the enchanting landscape and light. 

These posters / prints have been created from photographs taken during trips in Sweden 2011-2012 where Helena had her camera Olympus Pen 1 with her. Based on them, she has created patterns to enhance the enchanting landscape and light.

With the photographs, Helena wanted to test and see what she could do with all the landscape photographs she had brought home with me from the various trips. It was very beautiful scenery and the photos were a bit dull of all the beauty. When she began to see the images as elements, she could break them up and make something abstract of the so realistic landscapes. Try deconstructing and rebuilding. Abstract patterns of landscapes emerged and she began to see something different in each image, began to see what the landscapes consisted of. They lost their boundaries and belonging to the places in which they were taken.

"Could it be that landscape is something abstract without nationality. It may just be different types of systems and patterns that we humans cannot delineate. "

This is a series that was further developed in the exhibition "See the landscape and feel the scale" which was held in 2015 in Karbygård, Täby. Read more about the exhibition at 5land where Helena tells more. During this exhibition, the landscape images were interpreted by two jazz musicians Sten Berggren and Håkan Goohde who then called themselves Sonic Skin.

Sven Berggren is a trombonist and composer and has belonged to the Swedish jazz elite for many years, including as a fellow musician to the legend Bernt Rosengren and as a member of the traditional Norrbotten Big Band. Link to Sven Berggren on Spotify.

Håkan Goohde is a guitarist and composer and has played with many of Sweden's most acclaimed jazz musicians such as Fredrik Ljungkvist, Joakim Milder, Karl ‐ Martin Almqvist, Fredrik Nordström, Mattias Ståhl, Robert Nordmark, Johan Berke and others.

Some of the paintings that were exhibited at Karbygård are for sale under Konstloppis and Fine Art Prints.
