Abstract [en]

What kind of spaces can be traced from a specific sequence of paintings and how does the transition from image to volume work? The Wing is an attempt to approach mental space and to investigate whether an inner space can containtraces of architectural content, assuming that painting as media can work as a bridge to mental space.Many artists such as Wassily Kandinsky, Mark Rothko, Barnett Newman or Swedish Olle Baertling and Ann Edholm have worked with geometry or abstract painting for various, for example rationalist or spiritual, reasons. Their workshare the characteristic that they have many spatial qualities.Roughly we are talking about abstract, yet actual spaces where the dynamic in the surface planes, the open shapes, color space and the memories, intrude on the private space of the beholder and include her or him both physically andmentally.
