Jenny Carlsson: Svavelår

Hailing from the sparsely populated locale of Southern Sweden, Jenny Carlsson (b.1984) renders deserted landscapes as inspired by her hometown’s natural surroundings. She transfers her memories to our retina through works of layered paint and expressive brush strokes. Torpid woodlands, swamps, and roots take center stage in Carlsson’s abstract depictions of nature. Her works are on exhibition at Galerie Forsblom for the first time.

For most of the year, Nordic nature appears brittle and bare. This color-drained landscape is depicted in the Svavelår work series in tones the artist strove to maintain as natural as possible. The predominant colors are gray, brown and various shades of ochre, between which glimmer flashes of blue, green, orange, pink, and plum red. The contrasts yield a glossy black.
