Galleri Bo Bjerggaard is proud to present A Face in the Clouds, an exhibition of new works by the Swedish painter Anna Bjerger. The artist’s third solo show at the gallery features paintings large and small alongside works on paper.
Bjerger’s new paintings embrace both open vistas and intimate scenes of indoor life. Unlike her earlier work, the images are not taken from the artist’s books and magazines but from her own life. Large-scale skies and clouds and forest trees are complemented by smaller paintings of an overturned cup, shadows of leaves dancing on a tabletop, a flickering candle burning down. In scenes of everyday life far from the city, Bjerger compels us to look closely at ubiquitous but often overlooked things.
In her catalogue essay, Maria Kjær Themsen writes, “Zooming in on changes in little things – an overturned cup, shadows, the sky – is another way of unlearning the ingrained, dumbfounded fascination with the monumental, and learning to see the majesty of simple things. It is also a way of lingering on the mutable over time. Landscape as a snapshot in a larger timeline that is always changing.”
