ARTIST ILLUSTRATOR GRAPHIC NOVELIST
House of Cards is an art project for exhibitions where I interpret and am inspired by Tarot, occultism and traditional divination in the form of drawings, Objet Trouvé sculptures and a graphic novel titled "Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow".
From this project have grown my (currently WIP) fully illustrated Tarot Deck with the same title. The art work created for this deck aim to function both as Tarot Cards following the Waite-Smith symbolism for fortune telling, and as individual works of art separate from the Tarot cards in which they have their foundation.
Are you interested in following the progress of the House Of Cards Tarot deck?
As Above So Below explores through the Objet Trouvé made by ceramic and porcelain tchotchkes altered with blue enamel paint, handwrought iron nails, gold thread, gouache, acrylics and leaf gold a juxtaposition of the familiar and the unfamiliar, the conscious and the subconscious. Fragile idealized female figurines reveal a contrasting inner life through new, altered surfaces.
"Figurines of women, originally delicate and gentle ones, are spiced with dramatic splashes of colour and sharp nails. Kläpp furnishes them with integrity, and since the thorns are directed outward also provides them with a form of restoration as strong-willed individuals. Those who have previously only been regarded now clearly say their piece"

My art, illustrations and sequential novels have been shown in solo exhibitions in Sweden and in group exhibitions of selected artists and graphic novelists in Sweden and internationally. I love working with an exhibition space to develop a narrative within the room that heightens the work shown and creates an immersive expeirence for the vistors.
In 2013 I was commisioned by Kalmar Municipality to create a public art installationd for Trekanten School in Kalmar. Titled "Den röda planeten" (The Red Planet) the installation is acrylic, wax crayon and gouache original art work printed on wall mounted glas.
