This work was made for an exhibition in a church in Malmö. The ExhibitionPhoenix - Myth and Realitywas exhibited during Easter. Paper was chosen to work with since the whole theme is about change and transformation. Paper are more fragile then canvas and the tempera with using plenty of water reacts fantastic to paper. You don´t have or get that with tempera and canvas. Colours where chosen after I have been visiting the church during daytime and noticed the amazing light which poured through a beautiful ornamented church window. I also made the choice to stop the painting process just so the thin and faded background colours could come through in a different way and light. So most of the paintings in this theme and serie is actually stopped almost half through the painting process. It suited better to the theme and colours. Then I have a few paintings that is more powerful in colour and expression. All in all it made sense and came through really good.
