Erla Haraldsdóttir – Make A Painting of Trees Growing in a Forest

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

if you happen to be in Kalmar in  Sweden please be welcome to the opening of solo exhibition:
“Make A Painting of Trees Growing in a Forest”, curated by museum director Bengt Olof Johansson.
There is also a launch of the book: “Make A Painting of Trees Growing in a Forest” published by CRYMOGEA, with texts by: Kyllikki Zacharias, Jonatan Habib Engqvist and Christoph Tannert.
I will be showing 25 paintings, where each painting has a task or a request as a point of departure.
Example of one such task is: “Make a painting of trees growing in a forest”
“To execute the task of making a painting of trees in a forest is something very different from merely making a painting of trees in a forest. The instruction creates a framework  Every painting becomes the trace of a persistent thinking-doing painting process. It is a thinking of constricted independence that allows light and shadow to interact with the physical aspects of paint in order to create new spaces.”
(Jonatan Habib Engqvist)
Kalmar Konstmuseum, Kalmar, Sweden
Opening: 3 October, 2 pm
Until 22 November 2015
Would be lovely to see you there!
Warmly,
Erla
