Some more interesting titles just popped up... Three new titles by our old Edda Publishing ally Fredrik Söderberg. We only have a limited stock of these books, so please strike while the striking's good!
Fredrik Söderberg: Watercolours 2008-2019
A massive monograph that elegantly displays Söderberg’s watercolour work of the past decade. From explorations of the Occult, over Anthroposophy, Victorian pornography, Germanicism, Austin Osman Spare, and on to Catholic iconography, Söderberg consistently creates images that tell a much fuller story; from evocative portraits of key people to landscapes, psychedelic, geometric systems and architectural presentations. Söderberg’s visual acumen relays a constantly searching mind, and one that also finds and paints, in order to evaluate not only what has been but also what is yet to come. A truly magical and stunningly potent monograph.
Nordiska Akvarellmuseet, Skärhamn, 2020. Hardbound with wrapper, 168 pages. 23 x 29 cms. Texts by Bera Nordal and Fredrik Söderberg.
Söderberg & Ödlund: The Psychological Enigmas of the Unknown Life
A joint exhibition of the work of the absolute royalty of Swedish spiritual art also led to this beautiful catalog. Söderberg’s images are always steps on a spiritual journey – ever deeper and higher at the same time. Exquisite craftsmanship conveys Söderberg’s colorfully consistent search for the inner truths of existence. Christine Ödlund’s art is as conceptually vital as it is inspiring in its stark beauty. With her feet firmly planted in Theosophical speculation, Ödlund also soars to the highest vistas of the human mind and its visionary potential. Nature – inner as well as outer – rules supreme, and while it will always be a profound mystery, artists like Ödlund manage to offer small glimpses of eternal truths. A beautiful book and a sublime manifestation from two very important artists.
Kristianstads Konsthall, Kristianstad, 2019. Perfect bound with flaps, 140 pages. 23 x 28 cms. Texts by Ulrika Pilo and Marika Reuterswärd.
Fredrik Söderberg: Sun and Steel – The Warrior’s Path
The catalog from an exhibition focussing on macabre Japanese iconography, in which vistas of fighting, splattering blood, ghosts and skeletons spill over from pages saturated with line-work and vibrant colors. Similar in approach to Söderberg’s exhibition (and catalog) “Styx.” Larger paintings have been chopped up into detailed page-spreads that thereby tell different sides of the story of the “big picture.” A sublime display of darker aspects of Japanese history and approaches.
Cecilia Hillström Gallery, Stockholm, 2018. Perfect bound, 90 pages. 15 x 23 cms. With an introduction by Craniv Boyd.
