is a Swedish artist living in the woods in the North of Sweden and on the road.
Åsa is a traveller and collector of materials, a writer of poems, fairytales and non-fiction. She is also a Yoga and writing teacher, an explorer of comparative religion and a creator of multi-layered, ecology-based artefacts.
"I write poems, prose and fairytales, and combine texts, my own as well as others, with form and visual elements, experimenting with expressions of what text, writing, reading can be. Text as something more than a two dimensional surface, text as texture and form, and even something to physically interact with and embody.
For me, objects with natural patina, where traces of history are visible, have an inherent beauty, reflecting the rhythms of life, with its full friction and complexity, exposing layers of meaning, knowledge, experience in constant change. By working with these worn materials, I strive to embrace perfection in imperfection, placing as much value on the process as on the final result."
My work is both invocative and evocative. The working process and the artworks themselves function as instruments, concentrating on what I want to cultivate and what I want to let go of. There is a re-organising process and a further developing of symbols and concepts from several spiritual traditions, and I explore how these elements can be used today, their relevance in a contemporary context."
