“I try to visualize the pulsating energies given out by people and objects, to paint their gravity and movements, to paint the intangible and the temporary. Byharnessing the dominant sensation in this whirlwind, I believe the images will speak universally and not be bound to a specific experience. Formal movements from the images are somtimes transferred into objects and large-scale installations, as a way of pulling the figures back into real life.”

A graduate from the Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design in 1999, Andreas Emenius today lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark. He was born in 1973 in Stockholm, Sweden. He is also one half of Vibskov & Emenius, the artistic collaboration together with danish designer Henrik Vibskov.

Erik Berglin

Represented
+
 

Erik Berglin’s works range from interventions in public space and storytelling to examination of social phenomena generated on internet. He proposes the computer screen to be used as a creative viewpoint of the world. In a way it´s a contradiction to talk about the world without looking further then the display of a computer, but this practice reflects todays contemporary society. Berglins use of found images is based on a relaxed and playful attitude towards the concept of appropriation. He consider all art to be appropriation in one way or another and in our post-internet reality in wich even a figurative painter drawing nudes is most likely influenced by the internet in makes sense

Erik Berglin (b. 1980) has an MFA from the University of Photography in Gothenburg and is based in New York. He’s series New and Old Possibilities was recently selected for the book Contemporary Swedish Photography.

Li Shurui

Represented
+
 

LI Shurui was born in Chongqing, China in 1981. She is now living in Beijing. Always observant to her physical surroundings for what catches her eye, and fascinated by light and the colour spectrum it produces, Li began her lights series in 2005 using airbrushing. Now recognised as one of the most well- versed in this technique in China, Li continues to develop her concept of lights and space, and has gained important collectorship from around the world for her work.

Often in large formats, her paintings are powerful not just because of their impressive scale, but the immersive atmosphere they create around their audience and their ability to capture people’s imagination, in a way that leaves them with a strong emotive impression. She tries to reproduce the sensation that the eye gets when looking directly at light; giving her audience a new sensory experience that creates optical illusions and changes perceptions.

Lucky Thief

Represented
+
 

Lucky Thief (Erik Wintzell b. 1982, Jakob Wintzell b. 1984 and Otto G Skundras b. 1980) is self-trained art collective who are based in Stockholm, Sweden. The production stretches from paintings and wooden sculptures to installations and video, and the group is right now expanding their field into architecture and new media.

Seeing art as a collective action, they work on the same paintings and sculptures at the same time, adopting the creative climate from band rehearsal sessions. Lucky Thief believes that the more irreverent, free and boundless the cooperation is, the more unexpected and exciting the end result gets. In this creative, and sometimes destructive chaos, no work is sacred. Sculptures as paintings are carved out and painted, torn apart, rearranged and converted in a prolonged and ruthless process. The style is a blend of modern and ancient culture.

Moley Talhaoui

Represented

Self taught artist Moley Talhoui (b. 1985) has roots that dates back 2800 years in norhtern Morocco, although he was raised in small swedish town Västerås within a large family with a single mother. From an early age his easiest form of communication was through drawing. He has no education in art whatsoever, everything he knows he has taught himself, both on the streets and in his studio.

His style touches a naive, early modernist language with a dark, contemporary gaze. Outsider art. The characters in his pictures reflects the subconsciousness, animalized figures with thick, painterly stubborness mixes with frail pencil drawings in abstract and geometric patterns. Creatures, often horses mixes with the human figures and a few words to create a suggestive existance.

In the exhibition Wunderkammer an installation I promise, I will attract my prey by Elin-Maria Johansson is presented. Her work is made out of many specific details and has an antique hallmark. The work Funeral III is questioning issues like the past and unattainable fantasies and wishes, like a place or a feeling that is unreachable. Johanssons work is hard to define in aspect of time and whether to place in reality or fantasy.

[Erik Mark Sandberg]

Erik-Mark Sandberg works are characterized by perfection and a fascination in persons, animals and their significance. In the exhibition Wunderkammer two portraits is presented showing an over weighted little girl and a boy, both children about the age of 7-13 years old, and both of them with abundant hirsuteness, which makes it hard to distinguish any contours or facial features. Sandberg gives the characters and objects a new context and a new definition and makes it difficult to distinguish the fiction from the reality.

Mode2 (born in Mauritius, 1967) moved at the age of ten with his family from the Indian Ocean to the southeast part of London. Growing up in the buzz of the city and its explosive music scene with punk and reggae mixed with inspiration from comics and sci-fi, he always had a pen and a pad in his hand and filled it everything. Through the emerging hip-hop scene he started to use the can and the marker instead and found allies. They called themselves The Chrome and had the Euston district in London as theirs. In 1987 the appreciated book ”Spray can Art” came out with one of Mode2′s works on the front cover and made him known around the world.

Music has played a big part in his life and he collaborated with legendary clubs as well as making music sleeves. Mode2 is based in Paris and continuously exhibits in galleries around the world. He contributed with a grand mural at the influential exhibition ”Art of The Streets” at MoCA Los Angeles, that ended up being the most seen exhibition in the museum and was the first show by the new executive manager for the museum Jeremy Deitch, who always had an eye for the imagery born on the streets.
