Stefan FranssonSwedish - lives in Stockholm
The compositions of Stefan Fransson seem to be comprising more than only the known dimensions of time and space. They show a complexity beyond the ordinary optical experience. An undefined vastness pervades these picture-worlds which seem to be lying in an infinity barely comprehensible with our senses. It is impossible to identify a beginning and an ending. These are complex arrangements, in which Fransson composes endless layers of pictoral fragments like collages on top and underneath each other translucent diaphane-like. It’s almost as if these worlds would be weightless - floating.
Some elements appear to be familiar, like flashes of memories, mingling with others. Other elements stay strange in their abstraction.
In the light of these suggestive permeations of picure elements, Franssons worlds breach paradigms in which linear fabrics of cause and effect are represented. Much more in his compositions, natural scientific and philosophical questions in which associations of networking are a basic principle are hinted. By this Stefan Fransson seems to succeed in building bridges between art and science, because his worlds seem to implement these theories visually.
