By the end of her life, the floral patterned wallpaper in his mother's dining room was tobacco-stained yellow. In an ongoing series of work (2008 - present) Ericsson takes a cue from these walls, using smoke to stain family images onto paper or wooden panels. Digital photographs are burned into silkscreens. Subsequently the images are recreated in nicotine as ashtrays filled with smoldering cigarettes are placed beneath the screens, slowly creating pictorial stains while destroying the screen. The results are haunting: delicate, durable and tarnished into an almost glorious gold that never escapes it's poisonous references. While conveying the "live, dream, die" loop that runs throughout his body of work, this series also reflects the DIY Punk spirit of his youth, as well as his training as a painter and draughtsman.
