Friday July 2nd, the Old Schoolhouse Gallery hosted a wonderful retrospective of the paintings by Christer Exstrom.
Titled, Between Darkness and Light, the acrylic and texturred paintings by Christer Ekstrom, depicted a state where “colour is the world of the soul emerging as the twilight of darkness and light”
This viewer saw a rich blend of William Turner, Paul Klee, and Robert Raushenburg with a distinct expression directing one into the realm of the artist’s intention.
Opening night was Friday, July 2, from 6 to 9 PM, the show continues Saturday and Sunday from 2 to 6 PM; and July 9 to 11, also from 2 to 6 PM.
From Krister’s Biography...
My Muse is the human condition and its relation to the devine. The spirit and soul of colours is my medium. My paintings are like flowers, they don’t portray anything external.
