Artist list

Karin Johansson

Karin Johansson's Collecting Butterflies is a continuous project of butterfly-shaped brooches that vary in shape, surface texture, and color. 
Love Jönsson, Curator at the Röhsska Museum for Fashion, writes "Karin Johansson is interested in that which is serial, repetitive, about collecting and dispersion. Her own take on this theme is made evident by the importance she lays on treating her metals, and by the minute differences of texture, sheen, size, and weight that can be detected among her pieces. The Butterfly Collection is just as much a sample card for what can be done with a material as it is a collection of things. The fascination that the artist feels for her materials and her tools mirrors the collector’s love for her or his chosen objects.”
