In Buddist tradition all things are considered as either evolving from or dissolving, into nothingness. This "nothingness" is not empty space. It is rather a space of potentiality.

"Mischa Björkroos series of monochromes merge from her preoccupation with ideas of the void, the cut, the line and its tangents. Concieved within an intuitive and meditative frame of reference, her work juxtaposes subtle variations with perennial themes. She minimizes explicit use of colour and shape which creates a sense of serenity and reflection. Longing for simplicity and purity, she sometimes explores the possibilities of using the canvas itself as the medium. Understated raw pigments enhance the white on white theme, a homogeny that is occasionally fractured by physical cutting. Both fragile and consoling these pieces ultimately challange the viewer to reach beyond stillness and investigate the fissures. Moreover, these absences within the void allude to altered perspectives and cause us to journey into the subconscious."
