This artwork is a two-part commissioned birthday present from a husband to his wife, Susanne. Shown above is the main work, measuring 25×75 cm. One part of it is an etched line portrait of Susanne, based on a photo (below, middle).
The other, smaller work is 25×25 cm (below, left), and has a text etched into it that means a lot to her, especially chosen by her husband. The far right photo shows how differently the portrait appears when seen at an angle.
The two works are made of etched and patinated copper, bronze and brass. They both hang in the family’s Swedish residence, next to each other with a small distance between them, together creating feeling of one whole work. Below, a selection of details of the two works.
