About The Art

Tina’s art consists of both images and poetry. These two components lift each other and you don’t know if the images are an illustration of the poetry or if the poetry is an explanation of the images.

 

The art is based on the emotional lives of people and portrays thoughts and experiences that most of us have had experience of. Tina says herself that she uses the art to process thoughts, experiences and meetings. The ideas of the art can come to mind whenever she gets the opportunity to let her mind wander. Sometimes the idea of the image comes first and sometimes the text. Images can come to her mind without knowing what they want to say and they will only later be added into a context.

 

Tina’s photos are narrative and get inspiration from the renaissance where darkness and religious symbolism played a major role. She finds as much pleasure in planning and staging  the image as taking the photo.

 

Many of the props she uses she has made herself with the help of her husband. She also acts herself in several pictures. The models she uses are all members of her family as Tina feels safer in working with models she has a personal relationship with. Her own sons, Albert and Gabriel and her nieces, Alba and Allegra are often used in the projects and they play roles both as children and adults.

 

The photos should be considered as family portraits, documenting a family’s joint project for a few years. Together they have transformed their home into a theatre with simple means and staged various stories. The whole family has been involved in being actors, light technicians and assistants. The photos therefore do not aim to be perfect but should be seen as paintings in light with a story to tell.
