Ylva Ogland is one of the most significant contemporary artists of her generation. Ogland lives through her painting, within the creation of her art and virtually in the midst of the exhibition, in the performance. Her artistry is based on personal experiences, mythologies and the subconscious, where art history is constantly present. In her painting, she processes memories, herself and parallel worlds where the Oracle and her mirror twin Snöfrid have prominent roles. For Ogland, painting is her language. Ylva Ogland and Snöfrid are one. Hence the artist’s new name Ylva Snöfrid.

“Looking at the Unconscious (Rose Quartz)” from 2011 is an installation with two paintings on easels, with rose quartz crystals, placed so that the paintings reflect each other. The two paintings represent the artist herself and contain a peephole, a recurring feature in Ogland’s art where we become the voyeur through the eyes of the artist. The installation has been exhibited at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, 2013 and the following year at Kulturhuset Stadsteatern in Stockholm.

Ylva Snöfrid participates in a group show at Färgfabriken, Stockholm, "Children of the Children of the Revolution", 14 April - 19 August 2018.
