From press release:
“Jag känner en utsatthet när jag vistas i naturen.
Naturen skrämmer mig och jag bearbetar rädslor när jag tecknar”
There is something out of place in Jeff Olsson’s art. His delicate charcoal drawings are magnificent and magnetic, yet never reassuring nor at peace. They depict a world which is dark and tense when quiet, and humorous, grotesque and violent when action takes place. It is a realm where lonely raving lunatics ride vast plains and solitary wild animals haunt the dark wilderness.
Welcome to a presentation of Jeff Olsson's exhibition A Wobbly Aim in the gallery! Jeff Olsson will talk about the exhibition in conversation with Magnus Karlsson (in Swedish) at 5.30 PM.
Time: Tuesday March 27, at 5:30 pm
Place: Galleri Magnus Karlsson, Fredsgatan 12, Stockholm

We have the pleasure to present Jeff Olsson’s third exhibition at the gallery. A Wobbly Aim presents drawings made in the last year. In the center of the exhibition hangs a jacket filled with drawn image fragments that can be seen as a compound portrait, or a workers jacket for poets.
’Konvergenser is a group show that from its first edition in April 2015 aimed to be an annual exhibition at Nevven collecting and grouping together the Gothenburg’s artists that we love the most.’

In 2010 Jeff Olsson participated in Knock Knock, a group exhibition curated by KRETS at Needles & Pens in San Francisco. We are now pleased to present his first exhibition in Malmö.
We are pleased to present Under the Spell, a solo presentation by Jeff Olsson at Market 2014. Under the Spell will show works on paper where Jeff Olsson takes us to moments in a remote wilderness with deep caves and enchanted forest. We can see traces of someone that has been here before us. Once the fire has been extinguished the clouds have become darker and the vegetation impenetrable in this no man's land.
Galleri Magnus Karlsson is pleased to announce a group exhibition that will be on display throughout the summer. In conjunction with the inauguration of Nationalmuseum’s temporary space with the exhibition Carl Larsson - Friends and Enemies in our building (The Royal Academy of Fine Arts), we will show Time Waits for Us .

From May 1st until August 1st, 2012, artist, painter, theatre and television producer Kamagurka acts as curator for a special art project in Bruges: Kamarama. On several locations he will display his own works as well as works of other artists who inspire and fascinate him. It is an exhibition full of remarkable art, surprising perspectives and a certain amount of humour.
Jeff Olsson showed a small exhibition in the gallery in 2009, but Parading Without a Permit is the first solo presentation in Stockholm.
We are proud to present an exhibition with three new larger works by Jeff Olsson. The stories spring to us from the wilderness, where dream and reality is as close as inseparable brothers and sisters, where the present seems to collide with the past and destruction with bloom. Drawings in charcoal and graphite in which the meeting with the grand nature contains the most detailed stories.
