About Mattias Gunnarsson

As a teacher I try to work as open as possible, with projects and workshops that focus on exploring rather than explaining. It is important for me that everyone finds their own interest in their work, so that the energy and attention for the process comes from within instead of from teachers, grades and deadlines. I focus on the open creative process, where curiosity and continuing work is more valuable than a specific goal. Of course there is a result at the end of the line, it always is, but hopefully one that can work as a stepping stone for new ideas, new projects, new explorations. As an artist I work both individually and in collaboration with others. It seems that I am interested in relations, references and repetition. They tend to appear in all my projects.
