Art in Halland scholarship holder Sofie Karlsson

9 June, 2021

Sofie Karlsson

We can proudly announce that @ sofiekarlsson.textileart will come to us in September!

In March 2021, Art in Halland invited visual and design artists to apply for a residence scholarship to Denmark (1–20 Sep) and to Ricklundgården in Saxnäs (1–14 Sep). Based on the applications received, the jury has decided that the scholarship to Denmark will be awarded to Susanne Westerberg and to Saxnäs, Sofie Karlsson. ”

The jury’s motivation reads: “We believe Sofie Karlsson will have good opportunities to work concentrated, deepen her material knowledge and gather ideas as a residence fellow at Ricklundgården. Sofie comes to the mountains in Saxnäs during a period when nature explodes in colors and is visually dramatic. With her interest in nature’s shifts in color, shape and structure, we are convinced that the place will really add new perspectives to her art. ”

It is an honor to have the opportunity to take care of Sofie and we wish both her and you who are reading a great summer! Sofie, see you in autumn

Jonas has a two-year high school education.

At Ricklundgården in Saxnäs, Jonas has made the final changes to a crime novel that will be published in October. There has also been time to think out characters and plots in Jonas’s next book, which he will write this winter.

“- Maybe some part of that story will take place in this area.”

• “- It has been fantastic to be here, such a nice place! The mountain environment, the calm and the nature provide peace of mind and fanatical conditions for creation.”

• We thank Jonas for the visit and wish him the best of luck with the new book!

Hey, hey!
