Lars R Melander

For as long as I can remember, I have been inspired by things and phenomena from completely different worlds. It can be a beautiful carburettor, a strange construction in the Latin grammar, an attractive human being or one or another unjust social reform. 
My experiences from the years in 13 different Swedish merchant ships will always be an important basis for my artistic work. The ships became my universities and the colleagues my teachers. But most of all, of course, the total freedom, which only art and imagination itself can give, has been the reason for my desire to create. 
Impossible machines, absurd situations and unthinkable events rattle around in my brain incessantly. Now and then they fall out in the form of drawings, paintings and sculptures.
