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!

ARJUNA GEIR AASEHAUG IN A SOLO EXHIBITION

13 March, 2020

We present Arjuna Geir Aasehaug in a solo exhibition during the period March 21 – April 5, 2020.

In this exhibition we will be met by Arjuna’s dreamy and enigmatic expression.

Arjuna works primarily with acrylic on canvas. He is interested in contrasts in both the technical and the thematic, and is happy to explore the contradictions and different characteristics that live side by side in the world.

“I seek in a poetic way to say something about loneliness, isolation and perishability in human existence. I also explore the meeting between our inner world and the outer; room and movement in the room. People or animals are often found wandering inland in an undefined landscape; People often just like a shadow or a silhouette. Time and work process are also important key words: I want there to be traces of time and work process in my paintings. Often several layers of different worlds on top of each other. “

Arjuna Geir Aasehaug has had several solo exhibitions in Scandinavia in recent years, and he has participated in jury-judged exhibitions; for example the well known Autumn Salon in Edsvik Konsthall both 2015 and 2018.

He was born in 1967 in Bergen, Norway and today lives and works in Partille outside Gothenburg.

Vernissage will be held on Saturday, March 21 at 12-16.

Warm welcome!
