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.

Susanne Johansson, Fullersta Gård, Huddinge, Sweden

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 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.

Susanne Johansson, Johanna Karlsson, Petra Lindholm, Under horisonten / Below the Horizon, Galleri Magnus Karlsson

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.

Susanne Johansson, Ett rum inuti / A Room Within, Galleri Magnus Karlsson

We are pleased to present Susanne Johansson’s seventh solo exhibition in the gallery In A Room Within Susanne Johansson presents new paintings with two parallel themes: nature and portrait.

The nature is depicted in an organic, fragmentary form of painting in which the recognizable meets the improvised. The subjects are taken from a nearby surrounding but are aiming inwards, towards a room within.

Susanne Simonson, MÅLNINGAR, 23.4 - 24.5 2009

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.
