Artist Statement

I am Sonja Theodora Joanna Lindell.

I work with sculpture,

installation,

printmaking and painting.

My work is a series of notes,

a code that I cannot always read.

I like mathematics, physics, chemistry, and biology.

I am driven by research,

process and theories.

Theories are assumptions based on speculation, general principles

independent of the thing to be explained.

My work is heavily aesthetic to me.

I work with the same tonal values:

black, grey, white,

and nude.

I use formats that are supposed to be informational:

newspaper,

graph paper,

televisions, but I do not provide the information.

My work is interconnected: the scraps from one project is used to create something new.

You do not have to understand it,

because sometimes I do not even understand.

I am curious.
