We are pleased to present Peter Köhler’s fifth solo exhibition in the gallery. Crepuscular Tales is a series of 36 drawings which will be presented as an installation in the main room of the gallery. A catalogue with all works from the suite as well as an essay by American critic and curator Terry R. Myers will be availble. Below an excerpt from the essay:
Peter Köhler draws like a dream, and maybe he dreams like his drawings. His works on paper are triumphs of pictorial alchemy, amalgamations of three core elements that anchor their persistent yet never repetitive production. The first is a type of close observation that is somehow both tenacious and casual, taken and selected from—it seems—everything he happens to see.
June 2016–June 2017, original work from the series Plain Air by Peter Köhler, Zinkendamm.
May 2014–April 2015, original works by Lisa Jonasson, Zinkensdamm.
March 2010–February 2011, Nachtspiel by Jens Fänge, Zinkensdamm.

It’s midday and I ride my bike along Katarinavägen. A man has parked his motorcycle next to some bushes. He sits with his eyes closed, back straight, ceremonially, with his legs crossed. Right next to him a large double-handed sword is stuck in the ground. On another occasion, I pass a small crossroad to Hantverkargatan next to Kungsholmstorg. A large and vigorous hare lies in the middle of the street. It’s alive but the hind legs are hanging limply. A few people stand around looking, someone is talking on a cellphone.

From Press Release (in Swedish): Utställningen Miscellaneous presenterar målningar och arbeten på papper som spänner från abstrakta koloristiska kompositioner till mer berättande tecknade element. Köhlers målningar och teckningar befinner sig i gränslandet mellan abstraktion och spontan figuration. “Det finns en känsla av isolation i det jag gör, men det blir lätt stereotypt när man talar om det.
