Love Lundell
Sentimentally Yours, The Red Forest

This autumn Love Lundell will present a new series of work in the exhibition Sentimentally Yours, Red Forest at Wetterling Galllery. The series is about times of transition, the period between childhood and adulthood. Memories of sexual awakening and places connected to these memories. Or the emotion of being trapped in this stage of transition.

Love Lundell’s collaged paintings, drawings and prints unfold in their own world. Dreamlike, mystical and surreal, yet also anchored in the everyday, his evocative scenes draw the viewer in and hold them back simultaneously. Employing a collage technique, Lundell creates his intriguing wonderlands by sampling images from various sources and recontextualizing them to suggest a hallucinatory inner reality. He draws on his childhood memories, dreams, books and the internet for inspiration. Where his early works were densely packed with detail, calling to mind a curio shop, his recent series comprises more pared down, atmospheric compositions imbued with intense colours. Lundell was born in Stockholm in 1981 and attended Trondheim Academy of Fine Art, Norway. He lives and works in Stockholm.

All Disco Dance Must End In Broken Bones

With a wry and darkly humorous title lent from Whale’s 1998 indie album, All Disco Dance Must End In Broken Bones, presents as a group exhibition about gaining traction and accelerating to live your “best life”. Be it that this need for speed is to go ”all in” to pursue your intrinsic urges and desires hedonistically, or question being rather of truthful self-realization to be who you are and want to be, at the end of the day. Possessing often an immediate depictive quality, the works are layered, connoting directly to one thing at face value, while each being informed by a specific narrative of their own that go beyond what is seen at glance.

Participating in the group exhibition are Gethin Wyn Jones, Seroconversion, Philip Dufva, Carla Garlaschi, Karon Nilzén Jonsson and Theodor Ander. The group exhibition is curated by C-print.
