Natalia Mikkola Galleri Duerr Antikmässan Lydmar

NATALIA MIKKOLA Feb 12–May 1

Lydmar and Galleri Duerr proudly present Natalia Mikkola’s solo exhibition ”Images and Identity”.

Natalia Mikkola has a flair for the sensual and mystical. Weekend excursions with her grandmother, an avid art expert, laid the groundwork for her artistic expression. 

Natalia Mikkola has never been interested in pure documentation. Her camera lens blurs the boundaries between realism and fantasy. Subtle color palettes are recurrent themes, landscapes and the misty gray monocromatic shades evident, as in Karelia and Victoria Falls. In other works, such as “Sylt, Kampen, Nordfriesland” a graphic landscape slowly evolves.

Noted art collectors and art experts throughout Europe have picked up artwork of Natalia Mikkola – Fine Art chromogenic prints mounted on plexiglas ®Diasec

Natalia Mikkola was represented by Galleri Duerr at the highly rated Nordic Antiques Fair, ANTIKMÄSSAN2016.

Sofia Unicef Matt Miley Galleri Duerr Art Week Kulturnatt Stockholm

Art Week and Culture Night

We believe in cross-cultural meetings, for example when Matt Miley’s strong female trickster is shown together with a single portrait made up of hundreds of unseen children. UNICEF’s For Sofia is every child and no child at the same time, created by the 3D animators behind the films Avatar, Planet of the Apes and TinTin. On Wednesday April 20, Sofia is here to share her story and Galleri Duerr will be starting a ”Silent Auction” in cooperation with Najdron Gallery to benefit UNICEF Children’s Emergency Fund giving aid to affected children. The work up for auction is a portrait photo, size 100 x 100 cm, of UNICEF’s new symbol ”For Sofia” – a collage of hundreds of children from all over the world in one single image. The auction begins directly after UNICEF presents the image at 4 pm and the journalist Nils Resare and digital expert Brit Stakson have spoken. You may make your bid on site at the gallery on Vanadisvägen 29 during Art Week until closing at Stockholm Culture Night on Saturday April 23 at midnight. You may yourself choose if you wish to remain anonymous or if you would like to have your name or your company’s name visible. Click on the following link to learn more about ”For Sofia”.

For each sold piece of Matt Miley’s work Galleri Duerr will be gifting a one-year ”Världsförälderskap”. Why not stop by us this week and become one yourself or as a give away?

Transparent Landscapes 7/4-30/4

Matt Miley’s first solo exhibition in Sweden “Transparent Landscapes” includes three drawings in ink, graphite and aquarelle, each at a height of three meters, as well as his most recent work – “Dissemenating Sentiance” – a collage of nine images drawn on three layers of drafting film. The exhibition is curated by Galleri Duerr, In collaboration with Najdron Gallery.

Life-size bears, mythological characters, birch tree forests, snow, Louisiana swamps, abstraction: These are some of the elements that one finds in Matt Miley’s art. In a transparent landscape, perhaps in the landscape of one’s self, his work depicts uncertainty through images of humans and animals in a state of becoming or becoming undone.

At Kapoth´s most recent exhibition, twelve of the eighteen paintings shown were already spoken for by the end of the vernissage. Another piece had to be removed for safekeeping after an attempted stealth – a larger version of a piece he anonymously posted to the head of Liljevalchs, who had it framed and hung on his office wall.

Kapoth Galleri Duerr

In the head of Kapoth

Liljevalchs Vårsalong 2014 chose two paintings of Samir Soudah – highlighted in the publications Svenska Dagbladet, Metro and GRIP. Mårten Castenfors, head of Liljevalchs, presented Samir Soudah´s works as a prime example of what Liljevalchs Vårsalong really stands for in an interview for Swedish television, SVT.

At Samir Soudah’s most recent exhibition twelve of the eighteen paintings shown were sold during the Vernissage and a piece hanging at Brillo had to be removed for safekeeping after an attempted stealth – a larger version of a piece he anonymously posted to Mårten Castenfors, who had it framed and hung on his office wall.

Samir Soudah´s path into the creative arena went by way of running a finger over the telephone directory’s yellow pages, the one with cover art by Dan Wolgers, stopping when arriving at “photographer”. Samir Soudah learned the art of photography by working as an apprentice to contemporary photographer Lars Tunbjörk, of which Samir has a signed image. He has also worked as an assistant to Åke E:son Lindman, one of Europe’s foremost architectural photographers, and photographer Jonas Karlsson, who currently works with Vanity Fair in New York.

As a counterweight to his photography assignments, Samir Soudah decided four years ago to move into painting, rather than fine art photography, simply because paintings are not possible to reproduce. In contrast to his corporate photo work, Samir’s paintings depict chaos.

Kapoth Galleri DuerrRecently Samir Soudah created an acclaimed installation on the highest point of Lidingö bridge, consisting of a chair, a table and a lamp – all safely tied together. Climbing with everything wrapped in one neat package, he documented each step along the way. Quite a contrast to family life after a full days work and helping out with the children’s homework and soccer practice.

Upon seeing one of Samir Soudah’s photos of the flag he had placed on the pinnacle of the bridge bearing his pseudonym “k-a-p-o-t-h”, I became curious about his background. His father fled from Palestine. While working with a Swedish industrial company he met Samir Soudah´s mother in the Orient when she was working with the Swedish Foreign Ministry. The family later lived in Spain and Mexico, finally settling down in Samir Soudah´s mother’s homeland.

Once in the Swedish school system, Samir Soudah´s speculations revolved around how to successfully blend in, already speaking three different languages and constantly pointing at the map to where he had been, in a class where only one had traveled abroad.Kapoth Galleri Duerr

While the rest of the family enjoys a holiday on the beach, Samir Soudah prefers to spend his time taking photographs or painting, sometimes even on old doors or found sheets of steel. He once even wrote an article for the magazine “Land Rover” during one of his road trips in his infamous jeep – the same jeep that his neighbors often witness him tinkering away with. In his “man cave” on Roslagsgatan, in stark contrast to the family home in one of the better areas of Lidingö, he will gladly spend his evenings painting with a glass or two of red wine by his side.

On Wednesday, November 25 at 5-8 pm, we are continuing our tradition of “Christmas Each Day” with an After Work Art Talk in Samir Soudah’s studio on Roslagsgatan. We strongly recommend that you do not miss the opening!

RSVP at the latest by November 24 to lotte@galleriduerr.com

Galleri Duerr will also show some of Kapoths smaller works in cooperation with the Affordable Art Fair at HTH on Kungsgatan 57, December 11 at 10 am – 7 pm and Saturday December 12 at 11 am – 6 pm in the aim of making art for this year’s Christmas gift.
