GOTHENBURG, Sweden-based artist Leif S?dergren is inspired by the rural, itinerant painters of the country’s province of Dalarna, during the years 1720-1870. His artwork is painted with acrylic paint on wooden panels.

THE LARGE FLORAL decorations (Kurbits), found in all his paintings are an invented, fantastical symbol of vegetal fertility, based on a gourd or pumpkin of biblical legend. Mr. S?dergren’s artwork can be viewed at http://swedishfolkart.blogspot.se.
