This is how I do it.

CHARLOTTA EIDENSKOG 

9–27/1 2016

The first show of Konsthantverkarna at Slussen is Rise. This is how I do itand shows very original subject of ceramic artist Charlotta Eidenskog. She uses both running and hard clay when she creates her forms with an area of sometimes paint, sometimes glaze. She is driven by the desire of its creation. At the same time, she asks the questions: Who am I? What is a community? Who am I in community? We in the community? What is visible? What is not visible?

Charlotta Eidenskog has had a number of exhibitions, including at Sofiero and the Ceramic Centre in Höganäs and she is represented at the Röhsska Museum in Gothenburg. She is from Småland but now works in Gothenburg, where she is active in the art world and runs the small gallery Two Little Birds.

Emma Vendelek about Charlotta Eidenskog

Paint. Form. Composition. Build up, tear down, rebuild. Charlotta Eidenskog do not have a final work in front of her when she creates. She rests in the process. Following in what is happening. In a year she had saved images and material.

When she started working on The Rise. This is how I do it she began in the right images and material. What was it that caught her? Why this form? Was there anything in common? No kernel? She cut, sketched, pasted. Shapes of forms. Colors of the colors. Eventually, she went over to the clay. Brought compositions. Tried out with different types of clays, the different nature of the surface, different colors, different shapes.

She is driven by the desire in her creation. Meanwhile, there are always questions there. Who am I? What is a community? Who am I in community? We in the community? What is visible? What is not visible?

In her last exhibition From a higher level“, she stood up and looked down on the systems, relationships and their constant circular flow. In this exhibition stands Charlotta in the middle of the systems. She looks at the parts separately, their connections and relationships around her. Itself as a part of everything. And she finds force there. It is what it is. I do what I do.
