The Bench – 2002 – Grey Bohus granite - Length: 6 m

Pure lines in a rough block of granite.

Granites are very hard, deep and powerful and the slightest relief catches the light.

This is why granite is a material that lends itself so beautifully to being worked. The majority of my work stems from this perspective.

It is also why it seems absolutely essential for me to keep my work as simple and refined as possible. This rule is paramount in my work.

Through my work, I have always sought a privileged relationship, a communion with people.

This sculpture was made in July 2002, when I was awarded the Bohusläns Stone stipend and was able to work at the KKV.
