Presentation
I was born in 1953 in Södertälje, Sweden (just south of Stockholm) and remained there except recently when I am staying more out in the country in Södermanland. 
I was shaped by the '60s, a time when everything was possible, and in a city which had ambitions to be a city of culture. 1968 inaugurated Sodertalje art gallery and I had bought the Beatles White album with a cover by Richard Hamilton in numbered edition (0327418). Yoko Ono appeared and was heard in the sound collage revolution nr 9. Art was a part of the realityI lived in and everything developed rapidly and it took on the difficult as self-evident. Then   time quickly rushed into the future. 

I work with the tools that my art requires. It is the idea that rules. It may be paintings, music, photo, video...  I have made public art and portraits.
Besides my own creations, I work with other peoples art, makes exhibitions, acted as an art gallery director, was a consultant, teacher ... 

Ett centralt tema i mitt konstnärskap är TID

Oceanic feeling II 
 Oceanic feeling is a mystic state when you feel a sense of belonging and oneness with the universe. 
 I. In 1989 I made an art project I called “Ocean feeling”. I left a message, a small engraved silver plate, you could put on a necklace, inside a box made of oaktree in a lake. Because the land rises it would be visible and could be found about 2000 years into the future. There were 2 silver plates, one was given to a girl 1989 and one was a gift to someone in the future. 
 II In 2016 the project continues. A ceremony will be held in 2 sacred places: Sankeien garden in Japan and Lid in Sweden. In Lid beside a several thousand year old stone grave. On the floor in Old Tomyoj, Sankeien garden there is a picture of that stone grave formed as a ship. The ships both direction forms a line around the planet. In Sweden and Japan 2 random chosen persons will be given silver plates to hang around their necks. 2 persons on this planet will walk away carrying the same message. 
 
The message on the plates is: 
 SOMETIMES STOPS TIME TO BREATHE
BREATHLESS I STAND IN THE CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE
AND FEEL ENDLESS LOVE

Galleri Kretsen, Södertälj
 
Jag hade min första separatutställning på Galleri Kretsen för 36 år sedan. 
Nu visar jag mina senaste verk. Presenterar bla.ett projekt som ska till Japan. 
Jag tillägnar utställningen min mor och far. De skulle båda ha fyllt 100 år 2016. 
Visar därför återigen videon "Återskapelse 1941" (kvinnan är min mor) och en liknande video på min far. 
Verket "Återskapelse 1941" är det verk som har blivit mest "berest" och setts av flest människor. Den visades först i ett skyltfönster i Södertälje 06, på Liljevalchs vårsalong 07 och köptes då in av Röhsska museet, var med i Tidens form på Nationalmuseum 08, DokumentART, videoart Szczecin, Polen 09, Papay gyro nights art festival 2014 på Orkneyöarna och Papay gyro nights 2014 i Hong Kong.
