Proudly presents Patricia Roda’s from Tölby, 15 km south of Vaasa Finland, Ilar Gunilla Persson, now living in Bagarmossen outside Stockholm (but originally from Dalarna) and Anna-Karin Jansson who lives in Stockholm, Bagarmossen.
Patricia has a bachelor’s degree in photography and has worked as a photo artist and photographer for almost 20 years.
In my photographic art, I try to highlight societal issues in a conceptual way. For several years I have worked with the theme of violence in relationships and the healing process. I really believe that the private is political. I work analog, ie take pictures on film with a 4 × 5 inch camera. ”
”– The stay at Ricklundgården was magical. The proximity to the magnificent nature and the daily sight of the mountain peaks opened up the vein of creativity in me. Grateful!”
Ilar Gunilla has a bachelor’s degree in photography from a university in Finland. Also has a polytechnic degree in Pre-press information production from the University of Gothenburg.
“My art could be described, abstract images, thundering landscapes with installations, political social art mixed with Nordic mysticism. I work with things close to me to touch, question and hopefully influence. ”
When asked what the experience at Ricklundgården was like, Ilar Gunilla answers:
“- Fantastic! what an experience – a combination of art and skiing. That Patricia and I had the opportunity to continue working on our Nordess project was superb. ”
Anna-Karin has a paid job as a nurse, most recently in palliative care. For a period she devoted all her time to developing painting at Gerlesborgsskolan and later she started working at night to continue painting.
“- I work with charcoal, pastel and acrylic. Above all, coal is important in my creation. Much of what I do has a connection to the underworld, the root nests and headstrong nature. ”
“People’s studio gave me peace of mind and a space I longed for and the view is enchanting. Almost so that you have to be on your guard so as not to get completely lost in the ever-changing magnificent mountain view. ”
