The figurative very seldom enters Sylwan’s world, it is the colour that plays the main part. Not only colour as shade, but also as a physical presence. Sylwan uses all the physical characteristics of the colour when she applies it to the canvas with broad brushes, colour knives or scrapers, or pours it over the canvas in pools and lets it run across the surface in large drops.
Astrid Sylwan, born 1970, graduated from Konstfack in 2005. Astrid Sylwan has quickly taken a position as one of Sweden's most prominent painters; she has been awarded several prestigious grants, exhibited throughout the Nordic region, and her work can today be found in the collections of eg. Moderna museet, Statens konstråds and Malmö konstmuseum.
Katrin Westman is an extremely ambitious young artist. Westman takes the viewer on a journey across the canvas in her sensual and abstract paintings. Along the way she reveals fragments of her process and a deep understanding of colour. The journey begins with an exploration into the history of art. By digging into the past she ends up in the moment and proves that the tradition of painting is always relevant.
Katrin Westman, born in 1987 in Örebro, Sweden, graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Umeå in 2015. Today lives and works in Stockholm. Works by Katrin Westman can be found in the collections of Stockholm Konst, Bonnier Konstförening, SAK (the Swedish General Art Association), and Kristenhamns Konstmuseum. In 2014, she was the youngest ever to be awarded Kristenhamns Konstmuséum young artist scholarship. In 2015, she was awarded scholarships from the Foundation Anna-Lisa Thomson, and the Eva and Hugo Bergman Memorial Fund.
