20 oktober – 4 november
Per Johansson(b.1984) is a painter based in Malmö. He studied oil painting with the artist Peenti Melarti in 2005 and 2006. In 2007-2008 he travelled to Kunming, China to study and work in a culture centre called TCG Nordica with 11 other culture students. This trip was very inspiring for him and of great importance for his artistic development.
In his new serie of paintings he is depicting mountains from Norway, Faroe Island and China. The inspiration for these paintings comes from his experience of the mountains but also from the chinese landscape painting and their thoughts about the importance of nature. They acted not only to depict mountains as they looked. Their goal was instead to capture natures soul and their experience of it. Nature was divine and a way to reach enlightenment. In the same way, he try to create his own image of the mountains, as he experienced them. Magnificent, mysterious and present.
