A conversation between Maria Lind and Bella Rune on 22 February, 2019
Maria Lind: Let’s begin by talking about what you are showing at Galleri Magnus Karlsson!
Working with common themes such as time, isolation, and transition, Amy Bennett is interested in the fragility of relationships and people’s awkwardness in trying to coexist and relate to one another. To that end she creates miniature 3D models to serve as evolving still lifes from which she paints detailed narrative paintings. Using cardboard, foam, wood, paint, glue, and model railroad miniatures, Bennett constructs various fictional, scale models. Recent models have included a town, neighborhood, lake, theater, doctor’s office, church, and numerous domestic interiors.

From Press Release (in Swedish only):
När jag öppnar dörren till min ateljé kan jag för att använda ett ord från science-fiction-film ”teleportera” mig själv i tid och rum. Varje målning blir en mental och visuell resa. Ett imaginärt rum för ögat att vandra in i.
We are pleased to announce Bella Rune’s (b. 1971) first solo exhibition at the gallery: XYZ.
WOOD – An exhibition about wood and its material to build but also the relationship between human and nature. Artists with different forms of expression interpret nature and wood as material. The architect investigates the properties of wood in the angle of construction and habitat. During the exhibition period seminar around architecture and urban development from sustainability perspective.
The exhibition is given in collaboration with Galleri Exposé and Sveriges arkitekter (Architects of Sweden).
There is a world, a world before and beyond language, an ancient, primordial world. We all sense it – some to a bigger extend than others. Hunter gatherer. There was a language of images before these letters. A painterly language that many still intuitively recognize. We don’t always know how to decipher this language verbally, but we feel it calling us from the forests, the mountains, the oceans and the caves. Hunter gatherer painter. Reaching out, tapping our senses, activating our emotions, connecting us to the beyond.
Amy Cutler's seventh one-person exhibition at the gallery includes new works on paper originating in “memories, misunderstandings and anxiety,” that explore the psychological impact of these volatile times while transforming internalized emotions and complex ideas into visual metaphors.
