Gunnel Wåhlstrand works with large scale ink wash paintings based on old photos from her private family albums. The process is slow and meticulous, with no room for error. When Wåhlstrand began recreating the photographs it was important to her that the paintings would end up larger than herself. Nothing was to be hidden, instead everything would be made as visible and tangible as possible, in an attempt to understand and immerse herself in an unknown past. Wåhlstrand started working with ink because the technique “resembles a slow developing process”, and the irreversible quality of ink means acknowledging that  “everything in life has consequences - you can’t undo your actions”.

This book is Gunnel Wåhlstrand’s first monograph, representing her works made between 2002-2012.
