Jarl Ingvarsson: FABRICAE
Ingvarsson’s artistic work stem from curiosity and an exploration of painting as a media, but also of the material that he works on. In the exhibition at Galerie Forsblom in Stockholm, Ingvarsson has painted on different kinds of textiles; sheets, fiber cloths, sun-blinds and more. Liberated from the traditional stretched and framed canvas, Ingvarsson’s paintings are unobstructed. With lightness he moves freely between figurative expressionism and abstraction.
Ingvarsson (b. 1955) has been exhibited extensively in museums and galleries. His works are represented in collections such as Moderna Museet in Stockholm, Borås Museum of Modern Art, Gothenburg Museum of Art, Malmö Art Museum, Sweden and in private collections.
Tuukka Tammisaari: Ricochet
Tuukka Tammisaari’s paintings include references to art history, personal events, memories and observations of nature at large. With an assembly of naïve art, neo-expressionism and playfulness, the motifs and the mixing of color, are equally important in his artworks. The title of the exhibition 'Ricochet' is about immediacy, unintended effects and consequences.
Tammisaari’s work is represented in collections at the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, Helsinki, the Leiden University Medical Center, Netherlands, and in private collections. The artist (b. 1984) is based in Helsinki, Finland.
