Overview

Galleri Flach presents new works by Andreas Eriksson in connection with the publication of his new monograph, produced by the Swedish art association SAK. 

Eriksson's first exhibition took place at Galleri Flach in 1999 and 22 years later the exhibition '1999-2021' includes both new works and four older paintings from his debut. The show is open for five days only and is presented in collaboration with Stephen Friedman Gallery, London and neugerriemschneider, Berlin. Hovering between abstraction and figuration, Eriksson's meditative works create a window onto the outside world and can be interpreted as patchwork topographies or details of organic forms such as trees, earth and rock formations. Andreas Eriksson was born in 1975 in Björsäter, Sweden. He lives and works in Medelplana on the south bank of Lake Vänern, Sweden. Eriksson's artistic practice is highly expansive, encompassing a wide range of media including painting, photography, sculpture, tapestry and installation. Eriksson's works often appear quiet and understated yet belie a poetic quality which has a lasting effect on the viewer. Since 2000 the artist has lived in a house situated in the midst of a...

Andreas Eriksson was born in 1975 in Björsäter, Sweden. He lives and works in Medelplana on the south bank of Lake Vänern, Sweden. Eriksson's artistic practice is highly expansive, encompassing a wide range of media including painting, photography, sculpture, tapestry and installation. Eriksson's works often appear quiet and understated yet belie a poetic quality which has a lasting effect on the viewer. Since 2000 the artist has lived in a house situated in the midst of a forest on the edge of a lake. Small events and phenomena from his everyday life and the natural world that surrounds him become the outset for his works, giving his formal, conceptual, metaphorical and perceptual decision-making process a firm context. The emotional intensity with which Eriksson imbues his work is the result of a sustained exploration of his response to the natural world.

"Whatever I do, I come back to that super sharp border between illusion and material. At what point does something come alive? Because it doesn't feel like I'm painting pictures when I paint, for example, it feels more like I’m in a collaboration with the pigments and the canvas. It's a deal between them, between illusion and material, where something suddenly starts to live."

– Andreas Eriksson in conversation with Hans Ulrich Obrist (2021)

From 'SAK Year book 2021: 'Andreas Eriksson', 2021 

"There's no up and down in my paintings. There's no south or north or west or east [...] It's more about how the paint lies on the canvas than whether it's a landscape or not. Also, my paintings feel like they are a reflection. That's why I like Monet’s water: because it feels almost like the real world is over the painting and what you see is the reflection."

– Andreas Eriksson in conversation with Hans Ulrich Obrist (2021)
