Lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden

Statement —1

”With intricate shifts in proportions and perspective, Ömalm creates a world that oscillates between the fantastic and the forbidden, the living and the dead.”

— Mårten Castenfors, Museum Director, Liljevalchs Konsthall, Stockholm, Sweden.

Statement —2

”Cecilia Ömalm´s artistry is spatial in multiple dimensions. From the two-dimensional photographic and manipulated images, through its gradual transition to a third dimension, where light wire has been used in a number of works forming a kind of blueprint from which fictitious walls come fourth. The historical and archaeological layers embody the fourth dimension; time and timelessness are created by culture´s oldest manifestations: buildings, places of worship, but also the roles and characters belonging to these rooms—a continuous travel through history.”

— Malin Zimm, Architect Ph.D
