Tove Mauritzson’s paintings emanate partly from the idea of the historical painting or tapestry which strive to tell an important story or highlight the importance of a patron. Like those, Mauritzson’s paintings also create representations of something that wants to be and exist,  that wants to persuade its viewer that what it is depicting is the true story. But the well-known landscape scenes and renderings of faithful dogs have been juxtaposed with modern life, common objects found in our time and the everyday life of the artist. The paintings seem to have sprung out of a well-loved album where images, memories and dreams collectively create an alternate world and story, which make up a new reality, combining the dreamlike and the worldly into one final image.
