The inspiration for Borgenhag Holmqvist’s paintings stems from his surroundings and everyday routine. In this way, he allows the viewers to recognize themselves in these familiar scenes and make connections to their own lives. Although at first glance the scenes seem ordinary, there is a certain atmosphere to the paintings that suggest that there is something more than what meets the eye. His works are like a riddle in which you are struggling to find out what is amis
CHINGIZ try’s to express life issues in an analytic-poetic way that is currently interesting for him. From this angle, the development of his idea is never finished, as it is organic, alive, in progress. It appears in different images and forms, documenting certain creative periods. It is a journey of discovery.
Diana Butucariu, from Bucharest currently living in Stockholm, artist in general, ceramicist and glass artist in particular.
In my artistic practice I work with sculptural objects where different techniques from the craft fields are brought together. A mixture of textures, materials and techniques activates the senses and accentuates the fine line between a present act and a forgotten movement. The dramatic character of my art-works draws the viewer into a dialogue about social differences and identities, cultural collapses and traditional remains
