Magasin III presents a solo exhibition by Swedish artist Gunnel Wåhlstrand, born in Uppsala in 1974. Wåhlstrand creates extraordinary large-scale ink wash paintings featuring monumental landscapes, compelling portraits and serene interiors with intriguing compositions. Each work takes months to complete, as the ink washes are applied in successive layers, gradually filling the white paper through a process that the artist likens to a slowly developing photograph. Embodied with an inherent level of suspense, Gunnel Wåhlstrand’s work transcends time as ordinary family snapshots are transformed into something more universal.
