EXHIBITIONS

Time to share some pictures from the exhibition at CAC Mijas - Centro de Arte Contemporáneo, in Málaga! They put together a beautiful show with all our works. I'm really proud to be part of such an amazing team with Artishow who gave us the opportunity to show our art in Mijas, just a room away from our masters Dali and Picasso! The exhibition is up until June the 30th, so if you are in the area and need a break from the burning sun, go visit the museum! It will be worth it!

Once again I had a great opening of an exhibition! I always love vernissages cause you get to meet so many interesting people and have valuable conversations. I had a little bit of a packed schedule before going back to Laxå to hang the last few paintings. As so often before, I was running late to my train (this time not my fault!) and as I am literally running to the train I see the name 'Laxå' on the train right in front of me so without really thinking more about that I jump on the train last minute. But why is the train not moving? I have been waiting over ten minutes now! I quickly realized that I had in fact jumped on the wrong train. So, nothing else to do than calling the art hall to inform them that I'll be running late. But luckily they are just wonderful wonderful people who helped me get some of the last paintings up so I had enough time to fix the last details the last 40 minutes before the doors would open! Phew! 

But hey! I am so happy with how the exhibition turned out, and I am thankful to all the visitors who showed up to look at my work and came to talk to me and shared their interpretations and emotions. I hope it is as meaningful to them as it is to me.

Preparing all the last little details probably until the second we opened the door!

And then the exhibition was official!

We created a little extra room for kids to hang out and draw if they felt inspired from the art in the gallery. Then they can hang their drawings on those walls and create their own little exhibition!

I met my dear friend Momen some year ago when I was out in town drawing. He told me he likes to draw and paint as well and recommended my work to the people at the art hall. So it is really thanks to him that they contacted me and we made this exhibition come true! So some extra thanks to him! And obviously some extra thanks to the people at the gallery, especially Sofie, for doing such a great job and always being there when I needed them in the process!

Now both vernissages in Laxå and Saluhallen Örebro are over, but that doesn't mean the exhibitions are! Both of these will be up until the 14th of December, so there is still plenty of time to visit if desired! I am going to take a little day off to catch my breath again! 

I got the opportunity to exhibit art at Örebro Saluhallen, the local food court in the city. Considering this is not exactly a gallery, and also an area that can be crowded, I decided it would be a good idea to exhibit prints instead of the originals. Which turned out perfectly because at the exact same time I had an exhibition with all my originals in Laxå Konsthall. 

I appreciate all the feedback and kind comments I've been receiving for this little expo and I am glad I got to show my work to a new audience!

 Last month I had the opportunity to exhibit at the international contemporary art fair “Art Innsbruck 2021” as I was represented by Van Gogh Gallery in Madrid. This was a totally new experience for me that definitely taught me a lot of things along the way! This was also the first time that I had to ship paintings abroad, so the learning started from building a box – to packing it properly – to finding out how to deal with the actual shipping. Let’s just summarize that and say that the last one mentioned is something I will be doing very differently next time. Somehow a big box of almost 1x1 m and 20 kg got lost somewhere along the road in Germany. After a lot of calls and nail-biting I could finally breathe out again over a month later when receiving the confirmation that the paintings had arrived safely to the gallery! Somehow my gut was telling me that things were going to be okay despite the hassle. As they turned out to be. I am definitely grateful for this experience and next time I truly hope I will be able to be present at the fair as well, as my schedule was a little bit too packed to make it work. There seemed to be so much art to look at, I’m sure I would’ve been stuffed with inspiration and met so many amazing artists.

I was asked to participate in a winter exhibition at Galleri Nord in Örebro during January. Despite the tricky conditions and restrictions due to Covid, the expo came to be a very beautiful and succesful one and I am happy to have gotten the opportunity to exhibit together with the other talented artist from across the country! Lots of artworks found a new home, so now it's time to start creating some new ones!

Time to get my foot into the big city! This month I had my first solo exhibition in Stockholm. Hopefully more to come soon. I always love getting in touch with new exciting and inspiring people and open up new doors. I choose to show about 20 artworks, covering a wide range of my portfolio. Also just sending out a thank you to the people stopping by and sharing me great responses and inspiration! Here are a few photos from the vernissage.

I got asked by Sensus in Örebro to hang a little pop-up exhibitions at Föreningarnas hus in combination with the 100 anniversary party for popular adult education in the city. I've been having some collabs with them in different forms before so I'm excited to keep working with them! I picked out some of my smaller pieces and created a little wall of "Hav och rike"! It will be hanging for a short period of time in their office building.

After participating in the Decembersalong in Katrineholm I got in touch with the owner of a cozy gallery called Galleri 12. A couple of months later I was exhibiting my work there!

The overal theme for this exhibition was Utopia, that's also why the title came to be "Till Utopia" (To Utopia). It's up to you if it is meant as a goal or as a starter point. While the past is already definite, the future - which is quite soon - is still moldable. A historical dream is today's reality. Dreams beyond the limit of reasonableness is suddenly reachable and it is no longer about "if", but about "when". 

Or maybe, a historical reality is today's dream? Maybe Lucy was already living in a Utopia about 3.2 million years ago. Or maybe, the humanoid Sophia, just stepped into hers in 2017. Perhaps it is possible that eventually, we will live in interplay with our environment, where man is free and nature is left alone. Maybe when supernatural creatures, whom us intruders safeguard in the best case but get rid of in the worst, eventually can save us from downfall. A dream to experience something of the distant that we have yet not seen, or missed seeing with the naked eye. My Utopia might not be your Utopia. But both yours and mine is our compass. And both you and I can choose the good.

After almost four years in Örebro it was time for me to visit my home town, Arvika, where I grew up and started my journey of becoming an artist. I had a beautiful space at Galleri 39 to exhibit all my work from the last few years.  

Since a lot of these pieces were made during my time at the art school, it was a mixture of experiments that completed this solo exhibition. Even though there were different styles shown, several themes repeated themselves in my work. In general my focus is mostly set on people, animals and nature in one way or another. The way they relate to each other and themselves, and behave in different situations, environments and react to change.

Our need of the natural but at the same time stubbornness to evolve in different directions. We choose to swerve on an artificial road while a flower is trying to peer for a ray of sunshine through a crack in the asphalt, where we take our morning walk and breathe in the scent of a lovely mixture of lavender and exhaust. We grow at the same time as we take away from ourselves, we create our freedom by building cages and in the long run it is quite indefinite who is actually the most vulnerable in this. There are enough situations and behaviours to question, ideas to fantasize about and imaginary worlds to create without any logical limits. Sometimes closer to Utopia than reality, sometimes the other way around.

I got asked if I wanted to participate in this big yearly art event in Nora where they fill the whole town with art and culture. So I exhibited some of my older works in their library!

I got selected to exhibit some of my works at Katrineholms Decembersalong. It was a great day getting to meet really inspiring people and artists whom some of them now also have become good friends of mine. And another great result of this opportunity is that I sold one of my oldies! This series of little portraits has been with me for a couple of years and meant a lot to my artistry. They were pretty much a start of something new for me. Or even something real, I could say. The exhibition itself was really well put together, it is so interesting to see so many different type of styles come together in one room. I am happy I was a part of it. Here are some pictures of it!
