“I get my inspiration mostly from my surroundings and like to work with themes and motifs related to nature, and the universe around us. In ‘Relations of Colour’ the biological processes of seeing itself is significant. The installation is concerned with the relations of colour inside the work itself, rather than on the effects it has the space around it. However I believe that the space around will give its own magical vibe to the viewing and experience of the work.”
Alexander Salvesen is a Finnish artist with a background in fine arts and lighting design. In his work he favors the use of organic materials such as pigments, wood and metal. However his main source of inspiration lies within the fascination of the immateriality of light in itself.
