I'm so happy for the fine words from Åke Stålnacke
"This text springs from a state which I would describe as a rush of joy. It is true, yes indeed true, that I sit down by my type-writer to review a number of artworks that make me happy. Yes, TRULY HAPPY! The images, the artworks, catch me with their delicacy and tenderness, one that is beyond a lot of what I have seen on my way through the arts. Images as a rush of joy? Yes, truly. Can a few artworks give me these fragile and beautiful impressions? Yes, I believe that these works of art, these images, have exploded from a subtle feeling, sprung from necessity .
The images are infinitely sensitive and beautiful. They can never have sprung or been created from something else but a feeling of euphoria and infinite happiness. Yes, freedom.
It is Dana Ingesson that replies to these pictorial births. It is Dana Ingesson who has found the freedom of the art and soul and hurls or caresses these beautiful paintings. A great part of what is so astonishing with her paintings is the tangible feeling of EASE! I perceive an artist who creates her paintings through caresses. With easy, easy, easy hand she lets her love for painting speak. But yet with an intense flick and behind what I call ease is, of course, a pure and very simple feeling. A feeling that the arts should be the carrier of the most delicate of feelings. Dana Ingesson is a new name to me in the world of the arts. A new name but not a blank paper. I see and perceive great measures of painterly energy in this artistry. Art, not as decoration, no but as a sign of the most fragile senses. A grand painterly offering, rest to tired eyes, and a source of never ending energy.
