25 December 2006

Invited guest: Ewa Stackelberg (2)



This is the second part presenting pictures by Ewa Stackelberg.
The selection is from a suite of 42 pictures exhibited at Fotografins
hus, Stockholm in April 2006. The suite is based on an old photograph
showing her parents. She has created original photograms without
using camera or film. I am struck by the beauty of these images.
Please also have a look at the posting of December 22 with Ewas
photograms.











































There may be a sheet that shields us like a skin.
A thin sheet around our love.
That bears the newborn.
Cools the one that sweats.
Surrounds the lovers.
The ones who loved long ago,
in love scenes that precede us.
And then the sheet around the young.
I want to wrap up their openness.
Raise a weave against the red strobe.
There may be a sheet for the power and fragility of the body.
That surrounds and lets fall.
A cloth to give to the warm darkness.

Great treatment of these old photos.

Layering emotions, layering time.

Strong resemblance to the work of Gerhard Richter, by the way.
