With the use of watercolours, mineral colours and gold leaf, Fredrik Söderberg creates an imaginative world, always searching for a deeper understanding of the mechanisms behind human behaviour and its implications in a historical context. Art history, philosophy, spirituality and existential queries infuse Söderberg’s artistic process and serve as a backdrop for his work. Balancing complex issues in the grey area between good and evil; light and shadow, Fredrik Söderberg’s paintings are a result of intense concentration and imbued with a timeless beauty. His oeuvre encompass meticulously executed watercolours, abstract paintings and richly illustrated publications.
