LG Lundberg

”Perhaps you can say that Lundberg has got a belief in coincidence, but it is not the same kind of coincidence that occupied August Strindberg (Swedish novelist, playwright and painter). The coincidence in Lundberg’s pictures from the archipelago of Stockholm is not an attempt to understand the development of the Universe as a whole. It is something more trivial than that. It is traces left consciously or unconsciously by man which can be used as a source of inspiration or a catalyst for the development of the painting.

It is quite obvious that the artistic decisions Lundberg makes are part of a very consistent view on his work which aims at creating a humble and sensitive attitude where it is important to listen to and observe the minor and insignificant phenomena. It is not until you have acquired a humbleness towards the small details that you can understand the greatness of nature. It is this low-key artistic attitude that sometimes creates a feeling that Lundberg’s paintings has created themselves without participation of the artist. It is something this obvious that characterises good art.”

Bo Nilsson, head of Liljevalch’s Art Gallery, Stockholm, Sweden.

The quotation above is taken from an essay entitled “L G Lundbergs skärgårdsmålningar” (L G Lundberg’s paintings from the archipelago) originally published for the exhibition in Hishult 1996. L G Lundberg was born in 1938 and lives in Stockholm and Smådalarö, an island in the archipelago of Stockholm.
