Oslo Tengai
39" x 39"
Mixed media on wood

The first piece in the “Coordinates” collection about a sense of place, incorporating found and discarded materials. Tengai  天外 translates to "horizon, beyond the heavens, farthest regions" in Japanese. I traveled to Oslo, Norway in 2014 and this painting was inspired by a train ride through the surrounding landscape. As a Swede, the culture and language in Norway are both very familiar. The landscape is somewhat unique however - starker, dramatic, more sweeping lines and vistas - something almost Japanese about it. Along with the vibe I felt in Oslo, my visit struck a chord that had to be expressed visually.
