One Swedish artist who’s making waves through her use of material and composition is Charlotte Jonerheim. Her considered approach and careful arrangement of mixed media collages makes for serene and contemplative works of art. Working largely with everyday materials, Charlotte transforms the banal and reinvents throwaway materials as abstract artworks. Charlotte’s unique collages have a clear sense of depth to them, in which she layers translucent materials on top of one another to reveal what lies below.
Swedish-American artist Eric Wall also explores texture and gives weight to the appearance and properties of materials. Eric’s abstract paintings explore themes of space and emptiness and are united in their patterned appearance. For the most part, Eric adheres to a dark palette, making for atmospheric and at times dramatic paintings. His small scale encourages a deeper look into the many surfaces that make up each piece. In a similar way to Charlotte Jonerheim, Eric layers his work and juxtaposes materials and mediums as a means of instilling a sense of distance in his subjects.
Interdisciplinary artist Marie Langhans works across ceramics, painting and drawing to create humorous, narrative-led works of art. Finding joy in her animal subjects, Marie combines a figurative approach with whimsical patterns to create a dynamic collection of ceramic sculptures.
