Wall sculpture, ”Hope”, oak, ash, maple, juniper, aspen and walnut. This sculpture is by Swedish woodworker and crafter Ann Karlholm and consists of delicately layered wooden streaks. In these uncertain times, it is far too easy to be overwhelmed by a feeling of despair and so the things in life that remain constant can definitely offer comfort. Many of us are drawn to nature and spending time in the forest or by the water, precisely for this reason. Karlholm describes how looking across the sea always manages to have a calming effect on her. This sculpture is a physical manifestation of a glimmer of hope on the horizon, for the art viewer to rest hir eyes on. “Hope” measures 51,5 x 48 x 5 cm.
Ann Karlholm (b. 1965) lives and works in Stockholm, where she has her own workshop. She attended Carl Malmsten’s Workshop School and Nyckelviksskolan, both on Lidingö. Karlholm is represented at Nationalmuseum in Stockholm.
