Suddenly, facing Christel Hansson’s paintings and graphic art, facing the light falling in them, the sense of repose in midst of dissolution, Seneca comes to my mind (4 BC – 65 AD): “If you do not seize the vanishing day, it will fade away”.

It is not mainly the moral-philosophical challenge that I find linked with the pictures, but more the contradiction in a striving to hold down something that is absolutely not possible to contain: light and time. The act of creation itself mirrors the vanity of this intent.
Since: “Even if you seize him, still he vanishes”
