Jonas describes his Studio world for us:

“Often the starting point in many of my works, begin in silence without room and shape. The fluent void of transformation and flow of processes, in any form, are often a welcomed educator and teacher in that silence.

When walked by, contemplated over and observed, they more than once, tend to mesmerize you on the road that follows. Taking notes with an instrument who has it’s own temper and processes as watercolor has, I just love.

With as few strokes as possible, I try to describe sensations in the gray area between the self and the surrounding void. In footprints left behind, delineation and depictions will be found between thoughts and the present.”

This world for Jonas is based in Hassela – Sweden
