Per Fritz och Gunvi Bengtsson

Proudly presents Per Fritz and Gunvi Bengtsson.

Per and Gunvi have been together for 44 years and this is their second visit together in Kultsjödalen.

– The first time we where here was in 1977 but we were not resident artists at Ricklundgården that time, we where just tourists in the area. The place is extremely important, I want to be open to the place and explore a bit to see if it is possible to reach old memories, says Gunvi.

– “You never descend into the same river twice”, says Gunvi Bengtsson.

Gunvi has studied at Valland and has also worked as a teacher at KV art school in the subject of sculpture. During her stay here, Gunvi has completed a previous project with the help of nature around Ricklundgården, more specifically a root. In the picture you see: “About the root attachment”, paper, pencil and root.


Per has attended Hovedskou painting school in the 70’s where he studied graphics in a total of 5 years. Over the years, Per has sat in his studio and worked and as time passed, the graphics were replaced by painting.

– In recent years, there has been a lot of focus on animals, bumblebees are very fascinating and here at Ricklundgården I have made a mobile with the 8 northernmost now living bumblebee species. Then I also started on a mobile with the material meadow wool, says Per. In the picture you can see the mobile, 140×100 cm.

All in all, Per and Gunvi are happy with their stay, it has been a good mix of work and leisure. They have walked along Trollstigen, Njakafjäll and Satsfjället and have been sitting in the studio in the annex, watching out over the landscape and fascinated over the changes.

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!
