Lars Berg

Born in Örebro, Sweden, 1951

Lives today in Gnesta, Södermanland, Sweden

The interest behind my artwork can be summarised by two concepts – mystery and playfulness. I want to reach something that has meaning for me in what emerges in a piece of work and I’m especially content when I meet existential grounds in myself or what can be seen as deeply humane, spiritual and in touch with nature and Universe.

My approach is to utilise a great portion of playfulness, with openness for what emerges in the working process.

The interplay of colours is central for me and the form is slowly emerging in a kind of dialogue between the image and my inner being, where my openness for what the material urges me to do controls the development of the painting, sculpture or whatever I’m working with.
