The exhibition Unfold consists of a series of new large-scale oil paintings on canvas. Sonja Larsson started to explore the idea of ”woven” paintings a few years ago. Line by line, the paintings emerge on the empty canvas. Initially, it was an idea about a working method but at the same time an exploration of where these layers of thin lines would take her. Every day, returning to the studio, the dialogue with the working materials continues and a tension is created between the seemingly perfect shapes and the trace of the hand. Standing in front of the artworks, the viewer is challenged both intellectually and physically.
Treacherous serenity is also within Sonja Larsson’s painting. For who can claim that this is about calm and quietude? Between steady lines and measured dots emerges a myriad of explosions.
