A Look Over the Shoulder
September 9, 2015 - Leif Mattson, omkonst.nu
"The extremes are what describe Martin Wickström’s imagery. On one hand the contemplative reflections from the sun on a house facade, the breathtaking mountain scenes and the nostalgic recaps from family albums. And on the other the muffled sense of war, the documentary elements with photos from the liberation of Paris and the commemorative plaques over Raoul Nordling (as a central element). Notions of family, security and dreams are put next to a threatening and turbulent world – an exhibition scenario that is not vastly different from reality."
