"FÄRGERNAS MUSIK"

As spring's big "Grand finale" at the gallery, we invite you to experience a sparkling exhibition with Emilia Linderholm and her latest paintings and glass works that she has worked on for the past year. The exhibition is also visited by Emilia's mother Lena Linderholm, who shows a number of her finest original works. This will be a unique chance to experience Linderholm's summery colors in a festive atmosphere at the gallery before the summer season begins.

During the Friday and Saturday of the opening weekend, Emilia, together with the concert pianist Jie Li, will tell about her creative work through beautiful songs that connect to the theme of the exhibition.

A warm welcome into Emilia Linderholm's creative sphere of freedom - a world filled with imagination, dreams and the music of colors.

ABOUT EMILIA LINDERHOLM

Emilia Linderholm invites the viewer into a world of lively and sensual painting. Inspired by the world of opera and dance, she portrays female figures in harmonious play of colors. Raised in a family of artists, she found early home in the opera environment and later switched to painting with the realization that only she could portray with her unique expression. Emilia also collaborates with the leading glassblowers in Sweden to create glass art that reflects her artistic vision and zest for life. Emilia is the daughter of two popular artists: the artist Lena Linderholm and the musician Gösta Linderholm.

MOTHER & DAUGHTER ON A JOURNEY THROUGH ART

Both Emilia and her mother Lena Linderholm are well known for sharing a passion for light and colorful splendor. Mother Lena Linderholm once said that she would like to "eat the light". What both Emilia and Lena have in common is that they always seek a counterweight to the dark.

Emilia is happy to share the exhibition with her own mother, who carries a lifelong artistry of high appreciation. Lena Linderholm's part of the exhibition is called "Memories from Provence" as a tribute to the French colors and shapes. They are both inspired by their trips to the Mediterranean and the colors that live there.

MUSICAL COLORS

"I often let the longing and drama of the opera inspire me and take place in my creation. The occasional aria takes place in the garden or in front of the easel, when the sun looks out over the red houses. My hope is that I can convey a lustful and creative feeling through the rhythm that pulsates between color and form. A feeling that gives fragility and power, joy and calm. The brushstrokes that make the colors vibrate.” - Emilia Linderholm

In music, people often talk about "chromatics", a word that comes from the Greek "chroma", which means "colour". Titles appearing in the exhibition include "La mer" and "Clair de lune" which come from compositions by Claude Debussy. Emilia has listened to these pieces when she painted these particular works. "Je Te Veux" by Eric Satie has also inspired one of the works. See if you can find more musical references!

IN HARMONY WITH THE GLASS ART OF SMÅLAND

Emilia creates the art glass together with the best glassblowers in Sweden, right in the heart of the glass kingdom in the forests of Småland.

"For me, my glass sculptures are an extension of my painting. As if a figure from the painting has wandered out of the picture and hung her beautifully dreamy bright red dress to dry in the sun.”

"This spring I have explored shifts, through the music and chromaticism of colours. In the glass sculptures, the colors meet in the transparent pink that shifts to the white. Turquoise and green meld together to form a rolling sea. In the sun yellow dress, shimmering gold trails can be seen and remind of the feeling of being dressed for a party. It feels like I took the little 10-year-old girl who lives in me by the hand, and she says 'Come! We go into the future together!' You get to create, feel good and fantasize - even if you're an adult! Life should be full of pleasure as often as possible!”.
