Richard G. Carlsson, Workspaces – Dialogues, painting, 10 January–8 February 2013

The work of Richard G. Carlsson (b. 1964) has long been characterized by a subtle expression that incorporates an intriguing dialogue between the abstract and the figurative in the form of sparse, intuitive yet precise non-figurative paintings and pragmatic visual surveys of his own studio space. In this exhibition, Richard G. Carlsson presents a series of ink works on paper. Here he has shifted his gaze outwards from his own studio to the workspaces of other artists with whom he has engaged in recurring inner dialogues over the years.

The opening of the exhibition will also include a book release of Richard G. Carlssonʼs artist book, also entitled Workspaces – Dialogues, that includes writings by Björn Springfeldt, former director of Moderna Museet, Kjell Strandqvist, artist and former professor at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm, and Ola Nilsson, author, as well as a conversation between Richard G. Carlsson and his colleague Martin Ålund.
