We are pleased to announce Susanne Johansson’s eighth solo exhibition at the gallery. Half-life presents new paintings and works on paper.
In recent years, Susanne Johansson’s imagery has penetrated deeper and deeper into the landscape. She finds moments of meaning and layers of concentrated time in its transformation, composition and details. Although the paintings are portraits of existing places, they also become an exploration of the possibilities of painting. They embody a narrative about our existence, life and transience.
This summer’s exhibition at Hellvi Kännungs, Gotland tours to Galleri Magnus Karlsson, Stockholm.
All the works from the exhibition are on display in the showroom of the gallery between August 21 and September 5.
The exhibition is curated by Brit Pruiksma and Magnus Karlsson.

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.
At Alma Stockholm we present a selection of gallery artists during 2019. The exhibition is open for members and guests of Alma and can also be viewed by appointment.

From press release (in Swedish only):
Fullersta Gård presenterar utställningen Hemligheter på vägen med måleri och teckning av Susanne Johansson.
Susanne Johanssons bildvärld återger ofta pågående skeenden, närmast att jämföras med stiliserad koreografi. På senare år har dock naturen kommit att spela en större roll i hennes konstnärskap. Hon säger att den erbjuder henne något specifikt, ett existentiellt sammanhang som kan påminna oss om att tillhörigheten till den är individuellt betingad och ofrånkomligt tillfällig.

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.

We are pleased to present Below the Horizon, an exhibition with new works by Susanne Johansson, Johanna Karlsson and Petra Lindholm. The exhibition has been developed through a long dialogue between the artists. The works included resonate with each other and bring up mutual investigations despite different expressions and techniques. Nature is both the setting and plays the lead part in the practice of these three artists.

Galleri Magnus Karlsson is pleased to present Susanne Johansson’s (ex-Simonson) sixth solo exhibition in the gallery.
Galleri Magnus Karlsson is pleased to present two parallel solo exhibitions. Susanne Simonson’s fifth and Anne-Marie Nordin’s second at the gallery.
Susanne Simonson exists in the boundary country between the figurative and the abstract. The new paintings are more expressive and spontaneous then before and carry distinct traces of their own process. She is combining a more powerful painting with the light transparent veils of colour. The scale of colour has been displaced and is heading towards the earth and nature.
