Swedish artist Gunnel Wåhlstrand (b. 1974) creates extraordinary large-scale ink wash paintings featuring monumental landscapes, compelling portraits and serene interiors with intriguing compositions. The point of departure for Wåhlstrands work was a box of family photographs, the only connection that she had to her father while growing up. To fill the silence surrounding his life and disappearance, she began to use these photographs: enlarging the image, delving into every detail and using her imagination to complete any information that is lacking or obscured. Each work takes months to complete, as the ink washes are applied in successive layers, gradually filling the white paper through a process that the artist likens to a slowly developing photograph. This book assembles all of the artists works, including an interview with the artist and a text by Lars Norén.
