Opening hours: Fri 13:00–18:00, Sat 12:00–17:00, Sun 13:00– 17:00.

Pia Sjölin uses Venetian plaster to paint her very colourful landscapes and abstract paintings. The landscapes reflect America and Sweden; her abstract paintings are based on architecture.

Pia is an artist and designer. She left Sweden in 1974, after completing studies at Orrefors Glass school and a two year tenure at Kosta glass works, to co-found a glass studio in Collinsville, Connecticut. She has created collections in both art glass and tableware. She has been represented at prestigious museums such as the Smithsonian Institution, the Corning Museum of Glass, the American Craft Museum and the Cooper Hewitt Museum. Numerous magazines, books and television programmes have featured her work.

In the early 90s Pia started to paint murals and faux finishes. In 2003 she started “Pia Sjölin Design”, displaying her designs in textile and glass. Currently Pia is painting Venetian plaster paintings, which will be shown in Sweden for the first time at Galleri David Hall.

Barriers

Sylvette Wikström

Oct 19 – Nov 23

Opening hours: Fri 13:00–18:00, Sat 12:00–17:00, Sun 13:00– 17:00.
Please contact the gallery to arrange other times.

Sylvette was born and raised in France and Belgium. She has lived in Gothenburg, and now lives in the south of Skåne. Sylvette was educated at the Lycée Royal in Brussels and the art school of Dômen in Gothenburg. She has worked as an artist for 25 years.

Sylvette’s images are usually suggestive stories from the past, often interspersed in or evoked from nature or landscape studies. The goal of each work is to try and capture the inner self with the help of colours and texture, and preferably in a way that both disturbs and touches the viewer. Again, again... and again.

The sizes of the paintings vary from about 40x40 cm to 206x200 cm.

”For me, fire evokes complex questions about our origins, the power of nature, and the future of our planet.”

Firewatch is my latest project. I’m not a nature photographer, per se, but an opportunity came one day for me to visit a controlled forest fire not far from my home. After that I photographed fires in 2012 and 2013.

Fire, of course, is one of the ancient worlds’ “four elements.” No forest without fire: no life without fire: no world without fire. Once man learned to create and control fire, civilization developed. Man could cook and eat foods that were previously impossible. Fire was light, warmth and safety. Like many others, I have always been fascinated with fire.

Japanska Tecken

Japanska Tecken

Mats Petersson

The exhibition was in conjunction with the Photo Biennial in Skåne, Photography in Focus, March 2 - April 28.

The images are from the book ”Japanska tecken” by journalist Mattias Berg and photographer Mats Petersson. It’s a travelogue about the future of mankind and development. About the Japanese future of the industry in the 90s. A rarely documented science-fiction-like world. The question is, what man can do with high technology. And ... what it can do to us.

It has now been more than two years since an earthquake damaged the nuclear power plant in Fukushima, with terrible consequences. Japan will never be free from earthquakes, so this exhibition of 1996 has frightening contemporary relevance too.

Some 13,000 people work in Tokyo City Hall. The earthquake center and emergency room, a so called "Disaster Prevention Center", is located on the 6th floor. This is where an earthquake can be monitored and followed on its way to Tokyo.

The exhibition shows the interior of the emergency room, and also portraits of Masao Suoni, Kikue Yanagawa, Tanzawa Yuko and Yuko Kojo, who were victims of the earthquake in Kobe, January 1995.
