”CANVAS, PLATE & PAPER”

Lena Johnson berättar
“För ca 3,5 år sedan påbörjade jag mitt självlärda konstnärskap i form av målning. Jag tycker om att variera mina verk i akryl och utforska olika metoder/färger/verktyg för att få en personlig prägel. Harmoniska färgskalor i ljusa och mjuka nyanser, men även svart/vitt kännetecknar min konststil. Att hitta balans och ett lugn i den färdiga målningen är en viktig del i mitt skapande och utmanar min kreativitet. Fantasin tar mig dit den vill i processen och det är en underbar känsla att följa utan att begränsa eller bemästra. Min förhoppning är att frammana en känsla med min konst, att skapa harmoniska och tidlösa ögonfångster, som väcker fantasin och en egen tolkning hos betraktaren. Känner stor frihet och kreativitet i att måla, att vara kreativ är att var i nuet.”
Enjoy!
Lena Johnson

“Welcome to the future” An exhibition by Henrik Svensk

Art
Henrik Svensk paints with acrylics, ink and resin on canvas and clutch disks. The aim is to break free from the conventional art and rather follow instincts. When creating new work, Svensk is led by the moment. After mixing the pigments and covering the canvas with either black or white base color, the dance begins. Svensk says that ”in the end it’s all about trying to control the chaos that emerge”.
Since the process is mainly instinct driven, the viewer is left to freely interpret Svensk’s work based on their own experiences and perspectives. Analogous to how nature and humans can exist and grow in the limited space in which they reside, Svensk’s work constitutes a sort of organized chaos where colors and complex forms collide like waves.

Design
Svensk’s design is, opposed his art, driven by structure and discipline. With additive sculpting in three dimensions he forms clean and dynamic interior decorations inspired by the baroque era. The pieces are designed by using a computerized tool for 3D-modeling and are then printed in PLA, an environmentally friendly thermoplastic material made from cornstarch and cane sugar – completely biodegradable!
Enjoy!

“In balance with colours, stones & icons”, exhibition by Annica Johansson

”IN BALANCE WITH COLOURS, STONES & ICONS”
EXHIBITION BY ANNICA JOHANSSON
JULY 8 – AUGUST 21 AT SCANDIC PARK

One artist – three expressions
Coming from the classic school of portrait painting, artist Annica Johansson goes outside the box into an abstract world on the canvas – vibrant and colourful. Stones – we usually refer to them as dead matter, but when put together in perfect balance magic happens. On these paintings the artist plays with our perception of stones, bringing granite and greystone into life in fascinating portraits. A series of paitings on canvas exploring stones put together forming portraits of solid matter. With the same vivrant approach Annica Johansson portays some of our most beloved icons such as Greta Garbo and Ingrid Bergman. Intimate and with a gentle hand Annica presents us her personal view of souls from the past – an emotional encounter!

About the artist
Annica Johansson has been engaged as an artist since 1996. Her workspace studio, once the study room of the director Ingmar Bergman, is located at Gamla Filmstaden in Solna – the Swedish counterpart to Hollywood. The cinematheque ambience at Gamla Filmstaden inspires Johansson in her daily work. Movie stars such as Greta Garbo and Ingrid Bergman began their careers just next door to Johansson, which reflects on a sequence of paintings showing the actresses as movie stars, feminist icons or just as the women they were.
