  • @GeorgesBergesGallery for “Collisions,” a solo exhibition 6/13/19 - 6/30/19 of new body of paintings by renowned Swedish artist my friend #JohanWahlstrom @Johan_Wahlstrom_Art
Wahlstrom often likes to say that he is “a painter who paints everyday life, but everyday life is filled with all of sorts of collisions.” His characteristic faces, a recurring motif in his work, are hidden underneath the layers of paint. The impressionistic palette is a departure from his previous works, with softer washes of ochre and earthen tones suggesting the natural world.
Anxious faces vibrate with primary color from underneath, as if attempting to break free, colliding amongst themselves like atoms, molecules, or ions. Wahlstrom treats his canvas like a vast universe.
The volcanic eruption of colors is a signal—a visual shock out of complacency, the cacophony of colors a reminder of all the vibrancy of life, including the good, the bad, and the ugly—each painting a microcosm of the infinite number of choices that lay before us in every moment. Collisions are not only between elementary particles, they are also result of infinite human errors. Faces occupy the canvas without any rules, punctuating the composition like raucous party crashers. In a poetic way, Wahlstrom’s paintings have an inner life in this constant tension between unresolved possibilities, creating a gentle awareness of the actions that we will might or might not undertake.
Wahlstrom’s dark narrative paintings in acrylic and ink are inspired by cryptic and often ironic social critiques. In their simplicity there exists a primal feel, as the work delves deeply into the realm of human emotion. •
