There is something sci-fi and post-apocalyptic about Ekblad’s embrace and presentation of what is essentially humanity’s waste. Equally, there’s an explosive sense of future-retro abstract centripetal release, seen for example in Stalk Gills And Caps Of Goodbye (2009), Dusty Dry On The Tongue Swallowed Some and To Drink A Glass Of Melted Snow (both 2010).
‘Painting to me combines expressions of rhythm, poetry, scent, emotion….. It offers ways to articulate the spaces between words, and I cannot be concerned with its death, when working at it makes me feel so alive.’
