About the Artwork

light&Dark Installation sculpture, by Kerstin Hedstrom
Kerstin Hedström often uses consumed objects, silent witnesses and symbols of events, feelings and experiences that, when put together, create patterns, surfaces and shapes. The objects, like other material she uses, vary depending on occasion and preconditions. She often chooses materials that break and reflect the light, create optical effects and lend her works life and movement. The collecting plays a substantial part of her work process. Commonly the object per se evokes thoughts and feelings at first. Then, during the collecting phase, ideas start to grow and slowly take shape. She Light and Dark Rectangular Installation statue, by Kirsten Hedstrom
has been collecting medicinal blisterpacks for many years. In each pack, she saw a reflection of the person who had pressed out the pill, as though the packs were storytellers. Some packs are pressed inward, handled in a rush. Others are neat and the transparent plastic around the pill has been put back into shape. Houses sometimes get to symbolize the ego and our concept of ourselves. By means of blisterpacks, thin offset plates, thin foam rubber and light Kerstin Hedström evokes thoughts on human togetherness, loneliness and desolation in the flickering light.

  • The ArtParkS Guarentee

    All the sculptures on the website are described by the Artists themselves stating the materiel they are made from and their dimensions. If they are stated to be suitable for outdoors they have a guarentee of 10 years subject to the effects of weathering which will alter their colour and finish over the years unless you give them  regular cleaning and maintenance. For instance Bronze and to a lesser extent bronze resin/cold cast bronze will aquire a green patina, usually rather sought after and all could attract moss  lichen and a greeny pollen especially under trees which should be removed regularly with warm water and washing up liquid.
    Iron and steel will oxidise(rust ) and this falls outside our guarentee.
    Organic materiel like wood, bark willow is variable and depends to a great extent on where it is sited and you should discuss any guarentee direct with the Artist as this too falls outside our Guarentee.
