Freezing Narratives

Dahlgren Strååt’s work is centered on the idea of time: more explicitly, the slowing down of it. He creates scenes that incorporate images from fiction, history or indeed everyday life. The work is his way of processing the things he sees and manipulating them into his own unique vision. The paintings become like narratives, where the viewer is invited in as a voyeuristic spectator and allowed to explore questions regarding their own self-image.
