Exhibition with Lisbeth Olofsdotter
Hi Lisbeth! We’ve heard rumours about your up-coming exhibition at Galleri Grip in Stockholm 23rd-28th of October – big fun! What can the visitor expect?
Hi! Yes, I’m excited. I think they expect anything from big paintings to small sketches.
You’re certainly a multifaceted artist, what style of work will you be exhibiting?
My exhibition will consist of one room with paintings that varies from dutch pour to ordinary figurative and another room that will show my paper works. Collages with themes and small paintings from my sketch book. Furthermore, I will also be showcasing a new painting printed on glass! It turned out very beautiful!
What have been your main inspirations to this series of work?
I would say that there are so many things that inspires me. I read an article in a newspaper about a woman who met a man who had a very nice hat and that made me put a hat in one of my collages, which turned out so well. So that lead me to start my hat series. I also love birds after reading Conrad Lorenz’ books about animal behavior. I have decided to be a jack daw in my next life.
You work both with independent series of paintings as well as work on commission. What is the difference in process would you say – between these two forms? Or are there any?
When I work on commission I have a talk with the client about what they want and in what setting it will hang. This is to get a vision of colors for the painting. When I paint solely based on my flow I just work in the moment. When I am finished, the art piece can work best hanging upside down! No boundaries at all!
We wish you best of luck with your upcoming exhibition and we cannot wait to visit! For other emerging artist out there – do you have piece of advice on how to get your art “out there”?
After many years in PR business I have a few pieces of advice; repeat your message, create your own unic selling point and try to be true to yourself.
