I’m prepping for the local arts collectives open house and art auction this Sunday. I hope a lot of artists contribute their works in order to support the local arts. Above you can see the art that I’m exhibiting and down below you can see the work I have contribute with for the auction.
It’s a monotype print called “Abstract people” from 2017.
The joint exhibition “Kvinnor med färg” on Galleri 13 in Sundsvall had its gallery opening this weekend. The exhibition titel is “Women with colours” and all kinds of interpretations could be seen. The yearly exhibition is in conjunction with the international womensday.
My piece of art is called “Kärleks katten” (“The love cat”). Free interpretation on relation to the theme.
A friend of mine helped me with some final touches on the edges.
There were a lot of visitors this weekend but also some quiet time for reflection and art discussions.
I have been spending some time in the graphics studio at #SundsvallsKollektivverkstad Here are some works in progress. Please bare with me on the poor quality of the photos and stay tuned for the end results.
The piece “Window” needs something more. I’m not quite sure what it is yet. I have only printed one layer here.
The first layer of “blue sun”. I’m planning to make three layers on top
The plate is ready for the printmaking process with its second layer on top of the already printed motif. I hade only a few minutes to make the second layer before the paper went too dry.
Here you can see the result of two layers in my monotype. First the black and blue and second the pale shade of #davesgray
A couple of talented local artists gave away their paintings to Unga Magasinets charity for the Swedish radio and tv show “MusikHjälpen” tonight! It was super fun. One of my paintings were there too ofcorse and there were a lot of happy winners there and ofcorse a lot of warm hearts that were happy to donate money for children in warzones that still have the right to go to school. ♡
There was people coming and going throughout the day and I made some new connections and saw fellow artists I haven’t seen in a long time. It felt great being part of the local Arts Collective again after focusing on two other art projects for the past two years.
My painting is the red and black at the bottom. I saw several great pieces at the exhibition that I liked, both in Printmaking techniques and also some abstract paintings.
