- working to get my SPAR installation from the Biennale in Venice 2019 travel around China and back to Europe along the new Silk Road...
Lund, Sweden – July 2, 2022
The photo on top is an excerpt from “Two At An Exhibition” (2021) that I shot at an art exhibition in Paris. The edition is 12.
Photographer Oberg has been silent for quite a while now because Peace Researcher Oberg has written and spoken quite a lot at The Transnational Foundation, at Jan Oberg and at his “Worldmoires” book. Everything has its time.
The NATO-Russia conflict playing out so tragically on Ukraine’s territory has consumed me completely – articles, comments, video, zoom, lectures, emails, social media, and interviews. I have also begun writing and being interviewed quite frequently in leading media in China.
The next exhibition
The 27th exhibition will be opened on the Night of Culture in Lund on September 17, 2022. Tentative title – “Eclectics Unfinished.”
New works and new olds
I’ve created some new prints and portfolios and revised existing ones. The new ones contain photos from Venice, China, “Combines” with photography and acrylic paint and, finally, acrylic painting with no photography. All to be found under “Portfolios” and “Shops” above.
Thanks to the incredible development of both printers and Photoshop over the last 5-10 years, I feel a need to rework some of my earlier works. I am far from a techno-perfectionist but if technology permits me to add quality, I go for it because, I want to give my visitors, viewers and buyers the best I can.
As these new works emerge, they’ll be shown below in the “New Works Online Show.”
SPAR to China
For more than two years now, I am working on getting my SPAR – Silk Peace Art Road – Installation that was shown in Venice during the 2019 Biennale – to travel to and around China. I feel I shall one day succeed, but due to the Corona, I wonder when. It’s still stored in Venice.
The Corona and other factors force us all to re-think how we exhibit and view art works. In addition, I want to reach out to people who can’t visit my studio here in Lund. You can now get a sense somewhat similar to walking from one work to the next that hangs on a concrete wall. This technology works but may take a little to load. You do not need to register or pay anything.
Experience my first two online exhibitions here.
Writings – A life in peace and photography
From time to time, I am writing on my online book “Goodbye Peace – Worldmoires Into A Peaceful Future”. It’s not me-moires but world-moires about how I have engaged in international affairs and also how my life and peace research work is related to my lifelong passion for contemporary art and my art photographics works today. If you’re interested, you may follow and comment on it while in the making and receive a note every time a new chapter has been published.
When I can find the time, I like to write scattered notes about art I see – to share positive energy but also because writing clarifies your mind and heart. It used to be a separate blog but these writings are now available in the “Other Art Blog” under the Blog menu here.
Now browse to your heart’s desire.
New works online show
This is a real home…
This is a real art home, not just a shop (but it’s fine if you buy). I care about giving you background stories, ideas and explanations – and relevant stuff under each menu above.
I want you to feel enriched from the moment you enter. And we always see more in an image if we know something about its context.
I struggle to make your online visit both easy and rewarding – so give us both a little time!
The Corona forces us to live and see art more online, but I have always worked with an international and not only a local audience. I hope, therefore, to give you a really good experience as close to the personal encounter as possible.
An author and photographer:
“I went through more of your photos this morning. They are incredibly striking, and give an amazing sense of place, and a feeling of being there in the moment. I’ve never seen anything quite like them. I cannot account for why that is, but something about them translates very freely between them and I.”
European theologist, expert in the Middle East and inter-cultural dialogue:
discovering you as an artist
not a surprise
since great humans
like for instance
c.f. von weizsäcker,
were also musicians,
A leading intellectual in the Balkans:
Fyodor Dostoevsky in The Idiot: “Beauty will save the world.” And Jan Oberg will help…
Many thanks. I am humbled and happy. I hope you’ll feel something too when exploring.
