- an often large heterogeneous mixture - a wide range of something - an extensive array or variety - a type of Scandinavian meal served buffet-style with multiple hot and cold dishes of various foods on a table.
SMÖRGÅSBORD is an eclectic survey of the past (and first!) decade of my work as a professional maker of images and objects, following no specific creative path but the one that leads me to cultivate and manifest my ideas, vacating the space for new ones to visit and grow, and utilizing whatever method or material best serves the concept and finished work.
The moral of the story, for me so far, and my ultimate aspiration, is to make what's on my mind and in my heart without restraint. To create with thoughtful abandon. To not to place myself in a category or work exclusively within a genre or subject matter. To not worry if the work is on trend, or if fits in with the rest of my work, or with the work of others. For me, creating is the ultimate freedom and escape, and I for one, believe it's the last thing that should be confined by limitations.
