“In balance with stones & icons” the summer exhibition at Scandic Park

”In balance with stones and icons”
Exhibition by Annica Johansson at Scandic Park Hotel Stockholm
Dates: July 5 – August 20
Address: Karlavägen 43 Stockholm

We usually refer to stones as dead matter, but when put together in perfect balance on a canvas, magic happens! The artist Annica Johansson plays with our perception of stones. She brings granite and greyston into life in fascinating portraits – as clear as daylight!

With the same viviant approach the artist portays some of our most beloved icons: Greta Garbo, Ingrid Bergman to mention some. Intimate and with a gentle hand Annica Johansson presents us her personal view of souls from the past – an emotional encounter!

About Annica Johansson
Since 1996 Annica Johansson has been engaged as artist, having her working space in a studio, once the study room of the director Ingmar Bergman, at Gamla Filmstaden in Solna – the Swedish counterpart to Hollywood. The cinematheque amibence at Gamla Filmstaden inspires Annica in her daily work. Movie stars as: Greta Garbo, Ingrid Bergman, began their careers just next door to Annica, which reflects on a sequence of paintings showing the actresses as movie stars, feministic icons or just as the women they were.

”Stones in balance” is a series of paitings on canvas exploring stones put together forming portraits of solid matter.

Some of the works by Annica Johansson at Scandic Park are fine art prints: No 5, 6 and 9. Each print has three different formats: 20×20 cm, 40×40 cm and 65×65 cm and are in limited editions.
