Mural at Mantaray Film in Stockholm

The wall is 2,33 m x 4,10 m, painted with acrylic wall paint, 2018.

My first mural painting in Mantaray Films’s Producers Office has been great summer project. I love working straight on the wall and create site specific works. Ever since I worked for Pat Steir, assisting her wall painting installations at Sue Scott gallery, and Anthony Sansotta, artist, director of the Sol LeWitt Estate and long-time assistant to LeWitt, I have wanted to create my own site specific paintings. Because it brings the painting into a milieu, it makes the work less of an object and more a part of the everyday environment, something more approachable and direct.

Independent Art Book Fair (IABF) has announced the 2nd Annual Independent Art Book Fair. IABF will return to Greenpoint Terminal Warehouse in Brooklyn the weekend of Friday, September 22 through Sunday 24, 2017. IABF has designed an AP (Artist Project) Program.

Rydh /Sörenson are happy to announce that we will be featured in the AP Program!

“We’re thrilled to share that IABF is back! We started IABF because we recognized a need for a smaller, more community-minded book fair that creates a more intimate, curated experience for exhibitors and visitors,” said Karen Schaupeter, IABF founder. “We were overjoyed by the response we received last year and can’t wait to see everyone again.”

This year’s fair will have 50+ exhibitors from 15 cities, including 25 first-time exhibitors

Rydh/Sörenson are proud to invite you to our upcoming exhibition, opening the 21 September at the Nordic House in Tórshavn, The Faroe Islands. We will present a new temporary outdoor sculpture and our new films will be screened during the exhibition period, 22 September -5 November.

The first film, “Environmental Ephemerals” is recorded in Tjörnuvik, at the Faroe Islands depicting our temporary installations in motion, moving through the Faroe Islands landscape.

The second film, “We Have Been Expecting You”, is a techno-opera short. The music and lyrics guides the viewer through a mystical place in the forest and the creatures that inhabits it, their intrigues and aspirations.

We will also release our new book Environmental Ephemerals. Environmental Ephemerals are site-specific installations centered on nature and architecture. The catalog shows you a body of work created in different parts of the world; Stockholm, Sweden, Brussels, Belgium, Spokane, WA, USA and at the Faroe Islands.
