Galerie Forsblom takes pleasure in reopening the gallery for the public with an exhibition by the Swedish artist Peter Frie (b. 1947). Frie invokes a sense of the sublime by filling the gallery with the awe-inspiring, elemental forces of nature. His images of endless sea and low-hanging sky are universally identifiable. They have very powerful genius loci, yet they also possess a metaphorical universality that transcends the physical location. Frie’s timeless landscapes have an experiential resonance to which everyone can relate. He transports us to places that exist in our memories – indeed, this is the only place they exist, for Frie paints only from memory, never by replicating real landscapes.
