Charlotte Gyllenhammar

Many of Charlotte Gyllenhammar’s works represent states of mind or highly emotionally charged situations that often provoke in the viewer a reaction of creeping anxiety and fascination. Her art keeps returning to themes such as falling, the borders between outer and inner space, the limits of the private sphere, lack of freedom, memories and threatening images. She also frequently touches on concepts such as beauty and femininity.

Gyllenhammar's art is imbued with a recurring surrealistic aspect though her imagery is not surrealist in the traditional sense, but rather uses a sense of disorientation to introduce or suggest alternative states. She lives in Sweden where she has realised several important commissions. Gyllenhammar has recently taken part in a major exhibition in Washington DC and Austria as well as in the International sculpture festival at Boras
