Pål Svensson (b. 1950 in Gothenburg) was educated at Valand Academy of the Arts in Gothenburg from 1979, where he worked with installations that changed his perception of space. In 1983, he came in contact with diabase at a symposium, a stone he carefully explored. He was seized by the strong expression of the stone and sought its opposite, to set the hard against the soft, the fine against the rough, the wet against the dry.
