January 25th 2020 is the opening of my first solo show at Agardh & Tornvall gallery in Stockholm. It will showcase new landscapes and revisited still life work such as this one.
Winter is upon us and while I’ve been busy in the studio lot’s of good opportunities has come my way. Presently I am showing this beauty in Galleri Fågel in Trelleborg area.
My palett has become more colourful of late. Here is a painting from a walk in Jämtland in the north.
This Autumn started with a solo show at Konstforum in Norrköping opening 28th of september until 13th of October. It is a great venue and I was fortunate to have Philippe Lassey by my side providing sound art and music. The theme of the show is scenes from the the war ridden Unesco ruins of Palmyra and Aleppo. I am very grateful to have received so much media for the show and that I´ve been so welcomed and supported by the gallery.
All summer I showcased at Carlslund Herrgård in Örebro and Tomarps Kungsgård (not far from Helsingborg) to see some of my new work. In autumn I will be showcasing at Konstforum in Norrköping and late in October in Istanbul. In May I was showing work at the group show “Årsringar” at Konstnärshuset. I am certainly having a terrific year.
Showing at Liljevalchs early this year was a great experience. And I am back in the studio again working on some work for the shows this upcoming spring and summer. The work is about the ruins again ruined by Isl (Daesh, Isis) during the wars in Syria.
April: I am currently working for my exhibits next year at Karlslund in Örebro and Tomarps Kungsgård in Skåne. December you will find some work of mine at Konstnärshuset and in Stefanskyrkan. And in January five works will be showcased at Liljevalchs Gallery in Stockholm. Welcome!
The show at Konstnärsbaren restaurant was a lovely experience. Thanks SKF & KB.

Galleri Trappan, Vällingby
The show at Galleri Trappan in Vällingby, Stockholm went very well for. Unsold work and some new will be exhibited down town in the autumn.
It will showcase some new landscapes that has developed in the studio the past year. Some of which are inspired by the great work of John Constable (1776-1837).

The show at Konstnärshuset went very well, and I am eager to continue the project after feedback and critique. The subject matter deal with changing perceptions on the refugee crisis and media in Sweden since 2015.
This summer the art project : Nationalparafraser will go on tour for the last year. Social anthropologist Urban Larsen and I exhibit and explore the concept of Hembygdsgårdar in relation to the National Museum and cultural heritage. As of yet we will show in Askersund and in Nora.
Last year I joined Tomma Rum to work and exhibit in Bromölla. Hoping to repeat that great experience this summer.
