Opening time: 2010/4/2, 16:00
TCG Nordica UP-Gallery
My name is Annica Marie Olsson. I was born on the west coast of Sweden in 1986. My interest in arts has been the one consistent thing throughout my life. As a child all kinds of art forms constantly captured my interest. If I wasn’t painting and drawing I was composing songs by the piano, selling homemade jewelry at the town market or renovating an old piece of furniture. My hands have always been my most beloved body parts since through them my soul, thoughts and feelings can reveal themselves before others.
I work a lot with symbolism but my art is often spontaneous. As I have just finished a painting I usually find that it has more to tell me about myself and my purposes than I knew when I first started. As a result my own art is feeding me all the inspiration I need to get on with the next project. I think that if my paint work was to be a book it would definitely be a biography. So my hope is that you will look upon my art with your eyes and mind wide open, for as doing so you will also be able to see into me.
This exhibition is a salute to everything that is going on beneath the surface of one’s personality. Feelings, thoughts, memories and hope are differently displayed in 5 works. Although I have done several exhibitions in Sweden this is my first solo and I am very happy to share this moment with all of you here at TCG Nordica.
