Nordic Nature

A region of mythical beauty, Northern Europe is well-known for snowy tundras and never-ending green forests. In the region, nature is not only valued for its beauty, but also considered as an essential part of daily life. The Nordics seem to possess an inherent bond and closeness with nature and easy access to the wilderness is taken for granted. The government is even supporting such initiatives; the Nordics have special rights in regards to freely enjoying the forests and professional life is organised in such manner, that there is always time to enjoy the outdoors after work, every day. Nature is thus an endless source of inspiration for Nordic artists and a reoccurring theme in art, which is why we have decided to embrace the topic in our new group exhibition, It Came from the North 

(Artworks by: Stefan Isakson, Mads Peter Iverson, Marlon Weston and Sandra Kantanen.)

The 21st Century Paintbrush

Many people ask how to look at photography and is it collectible? Never before have photographs been more accesible and viewed. Photos are posted on social media, shared, transferred, snapchatted: we are experiencing “image overload”. With high quality cameras, anyone can be a photographer. So, how should we make the distinction between art photography and hobbyist?

If you have been to Singapore lately, to Gardens by the Bay, you couldn’t help but notice “Planet” the floating baby by the water. I saw it after dinner one evening, and he looked like he was eerily suspended in a trance. I was mesmerised by the image and the technological feat.

The Art of Giving

Art can take many forms: painting, sculpture, contemporary art, installation, etc. But after my trip to Nihiwatu, a luxury resort on the island of Sumba, I realised there is also an art to the way we approach life and business.
