About Roland Persson
Roland Persson is known for his painterly, surrealist silicone sculptures, which he casts in moulds made from real objects. The silicone allows Persson to include the colour in the material itself, instead of adding the colour by painting, which makes the surface look very realistic. The material is temptingly, alluringly tactile, inviting us to look closer (and, if it were allowed, even touch). Taxidermy animals are reoccurring objects that Persson utilizes in his artistic process, but in the most recent works he has, in addition to fauna, also focused on flora and using plants as starting point in the casting process.
Roland Persson is represented by Helsinki Contemporary.
