My artistic oeuvre can be described as abstract, thunderous landscapes with installations, contemporary political art mixed with nature mystique. I work with objects close to me to affect and question the viewer. Everything is not always what it seems to be. But in dreams everything can be. my images move between what is real and dream. What is reality? Mysterious, thunderous, nordic landscapes in a soulful joy.

Tvättlina (Washing line) is a community art project where anyone can support equal values by hanging out a washing line in the colours of the rainbow. The project On Northern Routes is a union of northern artists searching to rediscover the human connection with nature. Ilar Gunilla's art combines the abstract, the collective human and the surprising in ways that stimulate the viewers own reflections.
