Vernissage med Rebecka Forsén

Denna kväll kör vi en vernissage med Rebecka Forséns nya kollektion.

Rebecka Forsén är en modern expressionist-konstnär med studio i Göteborg. För Rebecka handlar konst om kontakt. Med sig själv, andra människor och våra sinnen. Som konstnär skapar man något från ingenting och hon är passionerat nyfiken över vad som ligger bakom detta ”ingenting”. Psykologin i vilken konsten skapas.

Hennes process utgår ifrån mänskliga, kontrastfulla känslor som sexualitet, kontakt och existens. Med utforskandet som utgångspunkt arbetar hon sedan med att hitta sätt att framhäva abstrakta strukturer och rörelser på metallskivor. Hon arbetar snabbt och intuitivt för att fånga en känsla snarare än ett förutbestämt motiv.

22 oktober- 2 Dec

The exhibition ”I need you, I don’t need you” by Rebecka Forsén can be described as a visual diary of fickle affection. The sensual contrasts between raw vulnerability and fleeting power, the addictiveness of sexual highs and emotional lows. A tender portrait of our hunger to be seen versus the fickleness of human connections.

With the title inspired by Leonard Cohens ”Chelsea Hotel” and using the language of abstract expressionism and sexual energy, the paintings unclothe the human desire to be needed, passionately at war with the desire to be free.

I never once heard you say
I need you, I don't need you
I need you, I don't need you
And all of that jiving around

Rebecka Forsén (b. 1987) is a contemporary artist and creative producer based in Gothenburg, Sweden.
After studying Art History, Interior Design and working in Architecture in Stockholm, she discovered a passion for Textile Art which led her into abstract sculptural painting. After she completed her studies in Experimental Arts, focusing on Textiles, she studied Creative Production, Conceptual Art and Art Curation. Her signature metal paintings have been shown nationally and internationally in Sweden, Italy, Monaco and Spain.

Her work is characterized by finding ways to bring out various layered textures and movements in abstract paintings on metal sheets. She works quickly and intuitively to capture a feeling rather than a fixed motif. The process is one of spontaneous movements and intuitive creations in combination with abstract graffiti influences. Working closely with contrasts and the human psyche, the colors and compositions invite the viewer to explore their own inner movements and layers.
