It radiates a compressed concentration of highly-charged power that is transformed with suggestive radiant force into infinite space in strong dynamics and unknown dimensions. Art at its most sublime is a hymn of praise to creation, an invisible but ever-present force.
A sense of the infinite, a flight to an invisible destination.
A positive change of man's inner life, a realization of his world of ideas. An intellectualization, a visualization of the positive source of creative power, a visualization of its ethereal beauty."

Leontine Andersson gets the scholarship 2014 for her expansive and dynamic spatial compositions, that in an interesting way relate to Bærtling’s idea of "open form”. Her works are perhaps most easily seen as three-dimensional drawings, where the line game constantly overwrites itself in a restless hunting, both in an imaginary and pictorial surface but also in the room's three dimensions. Just as with Olle Bærtling's sculptures, her works modifies as one moves around them, while they remain compositional obvious from every position.
Cajsa Holmstrand receive the special prize for a artistic ability in the spirit of Olle Baertling.
Her art is a beautiful and pleasurable consequence of the efforts to artistically portray one of the oldest and most well-known formulas in the geometry, Pythagoras theorem or Fermat's enigma.
