Artist Statement

Selfportrait. Acrylic on Canvas.

Richard Solstjärna born in Sweden, lives and work in Berlin. Abstract Painting dominates my artistic expression. In my paintings the Energy and Force are visualized which are immanent in Nature. Forces at work in maximum self-sufficiency. Primary, undiluted, full of tension. Never at ease always in moment. A pulse in rhythm and rhyme. Emerging from a Void, an emptiness and silent space which is the source of its origin.

The theme, the mythologies and the concepts form the basis of my creations and for the technique I will avail myself of. There are no rules. Any preconceived image are dissolved for that particular artwork to emerge. Installations are made when the theme and work calls for it. Inspired by Life itself my imagination guides me through daily walks towards new horizons where new worlds can form and be born.
