Anders Reuterswärd

Fractal Art

Several art galleries around Haninge were open during the Easter Weekend, and I visited the Kyrkskolan Gallery in Österhaninge. This is one of the artists, Anders Reuterswärd. He had his first showing back in 1967. He is represented at the Moderna Museet as the famous art collector Pontus Hultén bought one of his paintings at that first show. Anders often works with fractal (repeating), triangles, and also with the central perspective. During his long career he has also worked with photography and made Super 8 mm film. As I was treated with coffee and cake in the garden, Anders and some of the other artists told me about one movie in which his father, the world famous artist Oscar Reuterswärd stars as a burglar who breaks into a house, and then leaves, climbing out through a window with a big bag slung over his shoulder. We used suggestive music, and it really was a fun project despite the fact that Oscar wanted it made one way and I wanted to do it my way, Anders explained. Everyone round the table agreed, as they had all seen the movie. You may have seen some of the other artists work on my blog, as I have photographed the last four Art Promenades.

Your photo is good as always, but I have to confess that I appreciate more the colors of the building behind Mr Reuterswärd, than the works he is showing us.

I'm guessing Anders will not be too pleased about that Vogon Poet :-) But each to his own, so here is a link to a post where you can have a better look at the gallery.

Yes, I'm a fan of his art. The Easter weather was great, since then it's been a bit colder, but hopefully it will be a little warmer come the weekend.
