Carl Kylberg sought to express the spiritual and universal dimensions in life which gives his paintings a sense of timelessness or eternity. Kylberg was very occupied with philosophical reflections about the human existence. He commented regularly his paintings in his diary, where you can find the key in understanding his oeuvre.

By painting in layers on dry paint, Kylberg creates a suggestive feeling that you are drawn into the painting, to the dreamlike transition between dream and reality. The technique in ”Lugnet mot kvällen (The calm down in the evening) are typical for Kylberg, and you get the feeling that the colours are vibrating.
