Malin Gabriella Nordin & Joe Roberts
GSB is proud to present a duo exhibition by painters Malin Gabriella Nordin (SE) & Joe Roberts (US).The exhibition will be on display 23 August – 21 September.
Joe Roberts (or LSD World Peace) (b. 1976, US) is a visionary artist particularly known for depicting his own explorations within the realm of psychedelics. His imagery is filled with reaccuring characters and symbols that aren’t in themselves unfamiliar to us (cartoon characters and smiley faces), but when arranged by Roberts in mandalas or as operating inhabitants of peculiar settings, it is made clear that they are inviting us to experience a transcended view of the world.
Malin Gabriella Nordin (b. 1988) is a Swedish painter similarly interested in exploring modes of perception. Nordin is inspired by nature, her abstract and often colorful compositions are undefinable yet clearly organic. It is nature, or the idea of it experienced in a dream or as a memory. Nordin holds a BFA from Bergen National Academy of the Arts and is represented in numerous public and private collections.
