Höög, Matilda

Painting, oil on canvas

You have to start somewhere, in order to try and understand, and reach at least some small measure of control. When world events are digital and readily accessed, but still hard to grasp, one way is to work with what you know: everyday life and your closest surroundings. Original photos were taken spontaneously, they’re moments and details. I select which might have something and paint my way through them, instead of letting the photo be the finished work. To paint takes time. I use this time to think about the observations, to understand the details I mean are important. The working process is a reaction to the instant media, the cell phone snapshot.
