The artist Joachim Karkea is coming to Gothenburg and RiverCity Gallery!

We are happy to once again show his popular watercolors.

Vernissage Saturday, April 10 at 12-16

Joachim was born in 1983 and grew up in Junosuando in Tornedalen and that is where he lives and works today. He started painting at the age of 12. During the years 2007-2010 he studied art at Sunderby Art School.

For many people, Joachim Karkea became known through his participation in SVT’s Konstnärsdrömmen 2016. He has participated in many exhibitions over the years, both separate and group exhibitions, such as Liljevalch’s spring salon.

The motifs are usually landscapes to which he finds inspiration from nature and the silence that surrounds him. Joachim has been called “the Master of Light”.

“I like to work with the light in my pictures, and watercolor suits me best to make the smooth transitions from light to dark.”

Azita Sassanian “Fallen wings and other whispers”

3 March, 2021

In the next solo exhibition, we will meet Azita Sassanian and her art. The exhibition has been named “Fallen wings and other whispers” and will show paintings, ceramics and graphics.

Azita´s style is the result of her experiments with different art forms; a search for finding a common language. Her art is personal but at the same time takes up existential questions. Despite the seriousness of the subject matter there is a  sublime undertone of humor in her art which creates unexpected irony.

Vernissage Saturday March, 13 at 12-16

The exhibition runs until on March 28, 2021.

Tomas Lacke initiates the art year 2021

8 January, 2021

The new art year will soon start at RiverCity Gallery.
In this year’s first solo exhibition we show paintings and sculptures by TOMAS LACKE.

“As a self-taught person, I have worked experimentally to find new paths through art.I use different styles and material choices to get where I want to go.The abstract works are inspired by our nature.It is the colors and contrasts from our nature in close-up that I want to strive for on the canvas, preferably without visible brushstrokes or interventions… I want it to look as if the canvases have created themselves.

I also work with sculptures carved out of steel which, in combination with painting or, when in a public environment, together with our nature create new expressions.”  Tomas Lacke

Vernissage Saturday January, 16 at 12-16

The exhibition is shown until January 31, 2021.

Warm welcome!

Glass exhibition with Mats Jonasson from Målerås

6 October, 2020

We have the pleasure of showing a glass exhibition with the glass artist Mats Jonasson from Målerås.

Preview during “Culture Night” on Friday October, 23  between 15.30 – 19.30

Vernissage Saturday October, 24 at 12 – 16

Early on, Mats Jonasson’s drawing talent was noticed and he began working as an engraving apprentice at the glassworks as early as 1959. During the following decades, he worked with several of today’s great glass artists. At the same time, he developed the style close to nature, which he has since refined to perfection.

“Our forests have affected the people’s soul since time immemorial,” says Mats Jonasson.

Inspired by this nature, he has with open minds created his distinctive objects in crystal. Today, the glassworks’ son is represented all over the world.

The exhibition is running until Nov, 1.

Warm welcome!
