"Richard Solstjarna: The Gossamer Lightness of a Gesture"
2008-05-15 until 2008-06-02
Richard Solstjarna, Swedish fine artist, will have a solo exhibition entitled "The Gossamer
Lightness of a Gesture" from May 15 until June 2, 2008 at Sala Barna Gallery in Barcelona, Spain. Stig-Ake Stalnacke, International artcritic, from Sweden comments: "Richard Solstjarna fascinates me with his suite of paintings. In some of his
art I see the gesture – the rapidly sketched sign, a fleeting feeling
flashing past – captured, ethereal and beautiful, on paper. My thoughts turn
towards to ZEN Buddhism. I think of Japanese Calligraphy, that lives a world
apart from Western art. I see images that want nothing else but to capture
the gesture as a movement, as a beautiful impression of the heart's song, or
purity." Richard Solstjarna has been a Premiere Portfolio Artist at absolutearts.com since 2004.
Stig-Ake Stalnacke continues, "A painter of that kind discards a thousand pictures and saves but one.
He must forever seek that picture – and only the one – that feels authentic,
that exudes vibrancy, vitality, and possesses SPIRIT.
"And now Richard Solstjärna comes along and shows these sometimes nervy but
for the most part clean and stylish sketched images, taken directly from the
depth of his heart. It is an “Eastern” art form. Art that is bold enough to
believe in the caress of a brush, a light stroke on the paper or canvas. In
the best cases, as at times with Richard Solstjärna, the result becomes very
instinctively beautiful (think of Jazz, think of flowing Jazz prose)."
Stig-Ake Stalnacke, is an international artcritic from Sweden and a member of
AICA (Association Internationale des Critiques d’Art).
