This is the “Mondrian variation”-series, where Anckarsvärd explores the stijl and constructivist aesthetics and works and make them his own.
The “Colour Seeing”- paintings were made with and without colour correcting contact lenses.

The “Everyday”-news paintings started while still in college at Glasgow School of Art.
One painting was made each day for half a year , the image selected from international press.

Anckarsvärd returned to this subject matter both 2009, 2011 and 2012.
