Abstract/Literal

The collection Abstract/Literal by the Swedish artist Hakan Arblom talks about very ephemeral side of our lives.

All of us live in our own reality, no matter what we see - we still see what we want to. The difference between something our brain creates and the objective reality was always the matter of studies and discussions, particularly due to the breakthrough in psychology made by the iconic Sigmund Freud at the beginning of 20th century. This question continue to bother new generations and to doubt what does "real" mean.

In this collection the artist is attempting to draw a line between the world of abstract visions and the figurative objects. We can see a clear division between the works, yet it is obvious they have a strong connection and flow together from time to time. This weird moments of unity create a special type of distortion that incorporates the collection into the whole. This distortion is like a thin thread that follows each work in an almost poem-like manner; it gives the light to some pieces while disturbing the others. Using different artistic techniques including digital manipulations and illustration, Hakan Arblom creates his own vision of the perceptive quality of the world around each of us; and the interpretation is fully up to the viewer's mind.
