Vernissage: Saturday, October 15, 13-17 hrs
NSFW/SVILOVA is proud to present “Joints” with new paintings by artist Astrid Kajsa Nylander. Her artistic practice is characterized by the colorful, bold, decorative, and hyper-realistic. The exhibition text by Emily Fahlén describes Nylander’s work:
“Astrid Kajsa Nylander's painting is a joyous deranged poetry. It consists of tender buttons, pine planks and roses that have stepped out of their environment. These are then placed in an architectural space and float like fragments from a bygone structure. The forms constitute something everyday familiar but in the pitched tones of the color the experience is put out of play and dilated like a dark pupil. By breaking up established associations, the artist opens the doors of the mind to the untested.”
The text will be available online and in print at our gallery space.
