Ville Andersson

“I have secrets that I want to confess and disclose. I want to invite the viewer to take part in a surprising relationship, to set himself in a state of play. Similarly to how the lines of the self fade when you love someone, my desire is for the viewer to allow himself to blend in with the work.

A work is not just a visual representation, but more akin to a mediator between prayer and hope. The image should not be defined solely by its aesthetic properties, but rather by the overall impression it gives. Appearance and style are important to me, and although I aim to produce visually interesting work, work that creates mood through style, and meaning through form, the true meaning of my work remains rooted in the unseen.

I portray visions and images hidden behind the visible world. Images emerge from somewhere beyond consciousness and connect with our material reality, then continue and carry the imagination and emotions far beyond this plane of existence. To an extent, these images operate in something of a dream world lodged somewhere in the mysterious hidden depths of the mind, giving unconscious impulses and premonitions for our consciousness to interpret.”
