Artist’s Statement

Södö is specialised in graphic art, but in the beginning of his career he also made collages in which he combined painting with various methods of printing. Since 2004 Södö has increasingly been using wood as a material for his art. Some of his works have been cut into shapes that remind pieces of jigsaw puzzle: they are reliefs decorated with signs and surface effects. Södö´s sculptures that consist of large forms and smaller parts are partly painted; they are combinations of loose and yet interconnected pieces. The artist finds working with wooden modules a flexible process which inspires experiments. Chance interests him both as a theme of art as well as a method of working.
