I’ve begun with the last four sculptures for the Rinkeby Terrace, the materials come from different parts of the world, one i got from from the woods behind my country house, another comes from Zimbabwe via Maputo and yet another one i got in Tuscany, where i had the opportunity to visit some old friends.
I thought i was done with my work for the City of Karlstad, but I needed to return to Odrinhas, a little town north of Sintra, to make one more marble cloud in order to reinforce the stability of the sculpture group “Detrás de los Cerros”
An article published in Vi i SKB about, among other things, the new commissions for SKB’s residential buildings.
A final effort to finish Detrás de los Cerros: A sculpture group for the Nursing Home of Oskarslund, in Karlstad.
I have often preferred to act before thinking and correct my mistakes along the way, but in this piece the error margin had to be kept to a minimum. I was forced to device a method and follow it.
And after many sleepless nights and cold sweats, with the valuable help of many people I managed to finish it, also the weather collaborated: it was only bellow freezing early in the morning.
The entire process is documented here
After two weeks almost nonstop work i just finished the six stone sculptures that form part of “Detrás de los Cerros”, a commission for the city of Karlstad
Centro Internacional de Escultura, Odrinhas September 2015
