The exhibition Still Life presents a personal selection of paintings, sculptures and photographs around the concept of still life.

From press release:
Welcome to our summer exhibition Art Attack delivering a real injection of contemporary art to you! Art Attack was born out of the Corona crisis when we had to change our planned summer exhibition. We hope this acts as an “art attack” stimulating your mind in a positive way during uncertain times. Right now, when we ourselves and the world at large face challenges, art can contribute to reflection and perspective on our existence and eternal existential questions.

Främlingar / Strangers at Hellvi Kännungs, Gotland, Sweden

The exhibition is extended until August 1. Open Wednesday July 31 and August 1 between 2–6 pm!

This exhibition is a personal selection of works that all formally resemble the portrait. Some of them are made as portraits of specific people, while others merely use the human face as a means of expression. Common to all drawings, paintings and sculptures is that the depicted a person is the main motif of the work. The oldest artwork in the exhibition dates from the 17th century, the last one was finished only a few weeks ago.

Cries and Whispers at Trafo Kunsthall, Oslo, Norway

Cries and Whispers is a group exhibition presenting Swedish contemporary painting and sculpture. Here, eight artists, born in the 60s, 70s and 80s, are invited to represent a figurative art movement that has received great attention in Sweden and internationally. The title, borrowed from Ingmar Bergman’s film Cries and Whispers from 1972, echoes in the exhibition. There is a strong relationship between these artists, but also crucial differences in their approach. Both the intimate, vulnerable whispers and the distant, powerful cries can be traced.

New interview with Carl Hammoud in C-print Journal

Ahead of his awaited new solo exhibition at Galleri Magnus Karlsson, C-print contributor Carolina Bergquist sits down with painter Carl Hammoud in his studio for a conversation about how a chance encounter with film director Ruben Östlund led to revisiting a past work of his own which in turn lays out the framework of his entire new exhibition. Moreoever, Carl addresses the notion of chaos which appears omnipresent and is commonly attributed to large parts of Carl's body of work.

Carl Hammoud, Lora Reynolds Gallery, Austin, USA

Lora Reynolds is pleased to announce The Arrangement of Separate Elements, a project room exhibition of new paintings, watercolors, and drawings by Carl Hammoud. This is the artist’s second solo presentation at Lora Reynolds Gallery.

This body of work depicts objects most of us take for granted: books, clothing, a stack of hats, a pair of glasses. As with all of his work, Hammoud renders the imagery precisely and illusionistically, leaving little trace of his own hand in his trademark palette of cool blues and grays.

Carl Hammoud, Design Matters, Los Angeles, USA

Word Bites Picture is an ongoing project by Friend & Colleague, launched at the Storefront For Art & Architecture in 2013. Contemporary artists, selected on grounds of pure subjective preference, are asked to submit an artwork of their choice, without comment or background story. In response to the artwork, Katya writes a 500-word fiction, resulting in a ‘caption’ that does little to clarify the artwork, but might capture something that’s otherwise difficult to articulate, like atmosphere or disposition.

Carl Hammoud & Jens Fänge, Gallery Baton, Seoul, South Korea

From Press Release:

Gallery Baton is pleased to present Diplopia, an exhibition introducing new works by Swedish artists Jens Fänge and Carl Hammoud.

Diplopia is the technical term for double vision; the simultaneous perception of two images. The title refers to the common denominators in the works of Fänge/Hammoud, such as the usage of two (or more) images, the double exposure of objects, or simply the equivocal nature of their works - where one interpretation is as true as another.
