Artist Siri Carlén finds inspiration in the aesthetics of the everyday. A water bottle, people walking on a sidewalk, a set table or a glass of wine are all motifs that she ha portrayed in her art. Her work is about lust, curiosity and inspiration, connecting the ordinary with the imaginary, turning functional objects into art.
She is also fascinated with natural shapes and folklore and strives to make sure that, “the art work bears traces of the human hand.
I work intuitively, and so the distance between thought and action needs to be short.”
