Erica Agerås (b. 1993) from Linköping, based in Stockholm, is an artist that explores the space between the surreal world and her emotions. During her years in London (2012- 2017) she explored creative illustration throughout her education and found a way to transform that onto canvas. Her biggest influences within the surrealistic art movement inspired her to use different techniques. The ink fine liners, used on “Flowers cry too”, is a time-consuming technique that bring textures to life.
She is working from a personal trauma and uses methods such as manipulation and hallucination to turn her memories into art. The flowers that keep repeating themselves is a beautiful sign of life and their dreamlike tears are a reminder of the healing process.
She continues to explore and develop her floral pattern during the process of manipulating her own memories with a therapeutic purpose.
