Some shows need to be seen in person, in a big spacious gallery, where gigantic canvases can overwhelm you in their peaceful positioning. And even though we just used a bunch of words that mean there are big paintings hanging at Regen Projects this month in Lari Pittman's "From A Late Western Impaerium," there are also highly detailed drawings and paintings that also suck you into their mysterious language and context.

The Art of Fredrik Söderberg

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, November 12, 2013
Stockholm-based artist Fredrik Söderberg has spent the past years exploring art's connection to the occult world and to different esoteric traditions. Religion, religious experiences and meditation are important parts of his artistic work and his life.  In many of his works "a cosmic abstract expression is paired with an accurate figurative and archetypal style, incorporating pure and intricate Mandela images inspired from Tibetan Buddhism and Native American nature religion and traditional crafts, all meticulously executed in watercolor, mineral colors and gold leaf."
