We are pleased to present Maria Nordin’s (b.1980) first solo exhibition at the gallery. Landforms is a geomorphological unit that specifies formations of a landscape. The exhibition includes works that connect the bodily with the spatial and painting as form and medium.
There is intimate tension and quiet suspense in the new paintings and drawings by Sara-Vide Ericson. We are in the woods, in the borderland between culture and nature. In beautiful and eerie tableaus Ericson takes us on a tightrope walk between the conscious and subconscious. In the painting Being Obvious (Oil on Canvas, 135 x 110 cm, 2014) a girl exits a shed shoeless in the woods. She is startled, her body caught in attentive movement. A harsh bright light hits her jacket and tears into the fibers of the jacket, the canvas and her very being.
From Press Release (in Swedish):
Blueprint unites artists and architects with wide-ranging and disparate practices under a single, uniting theme: using the “blueprint” module to explore the origin of their practice. First conceived in 1999, the exhibition was a low-budget, DIY effort by and about a group of emerging artists (“ambitious and broke” artists, in the words of curator/artist Sebastiaan Bremer). A decade and a half later, the artists’ practices have matured, and Blueprint remains a fascinating recent historical document and a record of the artists’ creative trajectory and evolution.
We are pleased to present this summer’s exhibition at Hellvi Kännungs, Gotland. The converted 19th century barn on the north-eastern Gotland serves as Galleri Magnus Karlsson’s project space in summer and it is now the fourth year we operate there during July. This year’s exhibition, Memories Look at us, presents new works by Tommy Hilding, Susanne Johansson, Tova Mozard and Per B Sundberg.
