Gunnel Liljefors – Hoogers

– was born in 1941 in Sollefteå.
– is a painter and a sculptress who realises her objects of art in different materials and
–    is a member of  KRO , BUS and Enamelföreningen in Falun
–    ” To me mouvement, the one inside you as well as the one outside, is the essential thing in art.”

As a former dancer and a dancing- teacher, her fascination of bodies and movements continues to live in her works of art. In her paintings and sculptures we meet waving lines and fluttering skirts.
Dancing and art have followed her through her whole life. Several of her relatives have been artistes and they encouraged her creativity. However, it was to the dance Gunnel Liljefors-Hoogers first set her mind. She started dancing as a child and trained by Donya Feur with Mats and Niklas Ek from the Cullenberg Ballet. Due to an injury she stopped dancing and started teaching. She has taught dancers for several years, both in Sweden and in Holland
Eventually her interest of art took over and she decided to develop in that area. After stydying art, she bought an old house to get a workroom. In 1989, she started working full-time with painting and sculpturing.
Her passion for dancing, thus in a natural way, can live on in new forms of expression; as subjects in her paintings and her sculptures.
