Christian Larsen gallery will open an exhibition with artist Viktor Rosdahl on Friday 23rd of August. Sometimes his work consists of grandiose cityscapes, where Rosdahl’s typical aerial swirls spread out ominously above the buildings on the ground. The paintings evoke visions of a kind of urban hell where all human life has been pushed to the margins.
A counterweight to these apocalyptic scenes is to be found in Rosdahl’s smaller format paintings. Employing an almost impressionistic sensitivity, he paints the trees’ nervous web of branches against a dusk-blue background.
Christian Larsen gallery can be found at Hudiksvallsgatan 8 in Stockholm.
