"In my pictures, it is the light that decides. Even when the picture is almost completely dark." Mikael Kihlman

The pictures have a realistic tone, they are pictorial, but it is an inner world they depict. This is clearer in the painting than in the dry needles. The dry needles usually start from an existing place while the paintings are somewhere between dream and experienced reality. Over the years, the color scale of the painting has slowly expanded and the temperature has risen. Since I am basically a black and white graphic artist, the road to color has been something of a research journey that has slowly expanded my world of images. The inner world and all that it contains is more real than reality. The images are created from the inner echoes of an outer world in constant motion.

“Only shadows and voices. Is there something so fixed on this earth, something so immutable that one can think of it without at the same time realizing that it too has passed? ” Aleksandar Tišma. From How to use peopletranslated by Adolf Dahl.
