| A Brief Ontology of Painting
Painting in between abstraction and representation always holds out a promise of thought and feeling. Emotionally, as well as intellectually, it marks out new horizons. Andreas Eriksson’s series Cutouts works with cut-out elements from discarded paintings. In Eriksson's work, cutouts—which previously have not been thought of as being able to survive aesthetically—are resurrected and taken seriously in their very own, specific form. Hence, something that is outside the painting shifts into focus here, showing us its asymmetrical edges and the marks of its production, and manifesting as wonderful, painterly work.

ANDREAS ERIKSSON (*1975, Björsäter, Sweden) works as a painter, sculptor and photographer. He began his long-term project Cutouts in 2014. In 2011 he represented Sweden at the Venice Biennale. He lives and works in Medelplana, Sweden.
