CONTEMPLATION
CONTEMPLATION We live in a time with great uncertainty, in our politics, our economic policies and relations with countries around the globe. What will the future bring? In this series of paintings, using oil and marble dust, Mats Pehrson depicts people in empty surroundings, alienated, erased of any reminder of city life. In an anonymous environment, together but disconnected, there is the one common denominator - their shadow - the inseparable companion. Contemplating in minimalistic settings, a reminder of an uncertain future. “Contemplation” has been exhibited at the VOLTA Art Fair in New York City and at First Canadian Gallery in Toronto and galleries in Sweden.
