C Göran Karlsson – Artist of the Quarter autumn 2021
C Göran Karlsson’s exhibition “An Angel in the Room” was shown from October 2 until October 17, 2021 at Sigtuna Kulturgård in Sigtuna, Sweden. Here we show pictures from his exhibition.
At the bottom of this page there is a slide show with enlargements of the paintings.
“Many years ago I saw an angel by Titzian, in a book of paintings from the Renaissance of Italy. It made a very strong impression on me, it had a luminosity, a depth and an obvious simplicity. A warm and loving charisma.
When I later on was sad for some reason, I brought back the image of Titzian’s angel. It listened, comforted and gave me wise advice when I was afraid of the reality outside my safe home.
It was this feeling that came to my mind again when I was terrified of life some years ago. I then started working on sketches where different geometrically simple shapes formed a figure, a symbol of calm and tranquil security. From the continued work, I have made many “Angels” and I have been happy and harmonious every moment we have been together. “
