LARS RYLANDER

Lars Rylander’s work is characterised by a vibrant use of colour and a dynamic play of surface and texture. His working process is fluid and organic as he works on canvases that lie around on his studio floor. They are in no particular order and without any specific orientation, so that he can walk around them. Quite unplanned, he moves around the works, mixing new colours, and whimsically applying the paint in drips and daubs, sometimes interrupting the surface with scratches or a line. As the paintings start to emerge, he places them on the wall and concentrates on that particular canvas, developing pockets of texture and alternating soft and vibrant layers of colour. Slowly out of this process, what he wants to express starts to emerge.
