The opening of “Drawings +”, a new exhibition by Swedish artist Andreas Toriseva, will be taking place today at Kaffistofan in Reykjavik, Iceland.
In his new work, artist Andreas Toriseva offers the viewer a delicate touch where the steadiness of the hand meets the solemnity of the mind. Big drawings and small object come together in a show that speaks of life, eternity, transition and beauty in shades of grey.
The exhibition consists of drawings in photorealistic manners that, for example, show a tree and a piece of charcoal and two smaller sculptures. The constellation is about the subject of nature in a mix of romanticism, exploration and aestheticism, which together conjures up questions about representation, perspective and time.
