Dagen fick en annan ton
One of Sweden’s most prominent contemporary painters, Astrid Sylwan, will show at Helsinki Contemporary in November 2019. Sylwan has exhibited widely in the Nordic region, and has been awarded numerous prestigious grants in her home country. Sylwan is known for her expressive paintings, where bold colours lead abstract forms. The artist uses the physical characteristics of the colours and layers, scratches, pours and dribbles the pigments on the canvas. The exhibition, consisting of Sylwan’s recent works, is titled Dagen fick en annan ton.
