Fredrik Roos Art Grant 2014

Tomas Lundgren

29.03.2014 - 20.04.2014


Fredrik Roos Art Grant, one of Sweden's biggest art grants, will for the third time be awarded to a young artist. This year, the jury reached the decision that Tomas Lundgren will receive the Fredrik Roos Art Grant 2014.

The Jury's motivation is: "By creating his pieces from blurred fragments of his memory rather than exact depictions he questions the classical aesthetic concept of mimesis. Someone's appearance does not tell you what that person is feeling or thinking. The artistry of Tomas Lundgren makes our everyday habitual way of seeing things sharper by reminding us about the deceptiveness of images."

Tomas Lundgren (born 1985) has taken his master at Valand Academy, Gothenburg, and works primarily with painted portraits of material found in photo archives, which he puts together in various combinations, sometimes so that the images resemble deformed human bodies or so-called phantom images that do not really show how someone looks, but rather how our memory works.
