About

Dan Wirén's work is in the borderland between the liberated, uncontrolled flow and methodical research - chance is as present as the investigation. By picking up tracks from visions and dreams, sequences are created that sometimes hook up in one place like an old gramophone record and then move on to something new.

The material used - brittle rice paper, pigment, felt, water - represents the actual marrow in the paintings. The process is driven partly by the material, the craftsmanship and the ease that comes with it. A series can be made in fifty times to find the right one, or unexpectedly end up elsewhere. The material is volatile but the result is experienced directly, recalling the water element and its constant movement but steady pace. The same duality is a constant aspect of Wirén's work - a desire for timelessness but still something durable, the flow of time that requires breakpoints to be able to move on. 

With painting and sculpture, the exhibition focuses Vehicles and Vessels  on the flow, on the ongoing process in Wirén's long-standing artistry where the work time and time again invents itself again.
