In November 2009, the decision was made to establish an exhibition program intending to broaden the dialogue with the Norwegian and Scandinavian public and enhance Oslo’s position in the global art consciousness, while keeping a close relationship with internationally acclaimed institutions and collectors.

For CHART 2022, Peder Lund is proud to present a solo presentation of paintings by the critically acclaimed artist Ida Ekblad. Taken from a series of works that the artist refers to as “nocturnal paintings”, the vibrant effect and impasto texture produced by Ekblad’s use of paint achieves a sense of inner glow within her paintings that appears as almost otherworldly.

Enquire
"I have thought that the twilight sometimes feels longer than the totality of the day. That during dusk, the movement from sunlight to blue and from blue to blackness holds the colors hostage. Transitional light clouds the hues and dims them. Calms them."
