Jeff Olsson, ”Natten reser som en ljudlös fågel” at Kristinehamns konstmuseum, Sweden

From press release (In Swedish only):

Jeff Olsson, född i Kristinehamn 1981, har berättat att han har tecknat så länge han kan minnas. I tonåren valde han bort ishockeyn i Kristinehamn för tecknandet, och han fick av sin bildlärare veta att det fanns konstutbildningar att söka. Via estetiska programmet med bildinriktning på gymnasiet, konstskola på Kyrkerud hemma i Värmland och sedan konsthögskolan Valand i Göteborg växte bildvärlden fram.

I vårutställningen 2021 vill Kristinehamns konstmuseum visa Jeff Olssons värld där naturen är influerad av myter och fabler.

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.

From press release:

“Jag känner en utsatthet när jag vistas i naturen.
Naturen skrämmer mig och jag bearbetar rädslor när jag tecknar”
Jeff Olsson

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.

Jeff Olsson, Hellvi Kännungs, Gotland, Sweden

We are proud to present the seventh annual exhibition at the gallery’s summer project space Hellvi Kännungs on the island of Gotland. This year we have invited the artist Jeff Olsson to live and work during the months of June and July. The gallery space will be his studio and on July 20 we will open the doors to present what has been made during his stay. The exhibition will run until July 30 and will be open every day.

Jeff Olsson, MARKET, Liljevalchs, Stockholm, Sweden

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.

Time Waits for Us, Galleri Magnus Karlsson

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 . This exhibition presents new works by all of our gallery artists.

Jeff Olsson, Kamarama, Bruges, Belgium

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.

New works

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.
