Gunilla OldenburgGunilla Oldenburg
GUNILLA OLDENBURG

Bildkonstnär, född i Avesta, bosatt i Stockholm. Konststudier i frihandsteckning på Konstfack i Stockhom, abstrakt måleri hos Emilio Vedova, Zao Wou-Ki och Corneille på internationella konstakademin i Salzburg, konsthistoria på Stockholms universitet.1994 gästade hon konstnärsateljén i Shabramant, Kairo, Egypten och 1996 Akademie Libre i Paleyrac, Frankrike. Hennes måleri och installationer är en intressant kombination av öst och väst, kompositioner där fantasi, färg, form och rytm blandas på ett poetiskt och balanserat sätt. Tekniken är i huvudsak mixed media, akryl, gouache och collage. I hennes målningar kan man ibland finna konkreta objekt från naturen, så som torkade havsalger från Sveriges västkust, sand från Saharas öken eller en ametist från Brasilien. Efter Florensbiennalen 2005 har hon till största delen deltagit i internationella utställningar, de flesta i Italien och USA. 2008 hade hon separatutställning på Manhattan i New York och 2009 gav NY Arts ut en bok om hennes konst.
Parallellt med sitt konstnärsskap har hon, efter avlagd lärarexamen i Uppsala 1966 och speciallärarlinjen i Stockholm 1979, arbetat som speciallärare fram till år 2005.


"...The artist´s works in a variety of mediums impact ours senses, awaken our emotional memory, and empower us to see the universe and beyond. A painting should not end on the canvas, the artist states. It should encourage viewers to create worlds of their own. The work of Oldenburg allows us to do just that. Passionately committed to exploring the inherent properties, color and power of each medium, Oldenburg´s ardor for materials is evident in both her paintings and installations... "
Suzie Walshe, writer NY ARTS

"The pictorial gesture in Gunilla Oldenburg turns into pure linguistic power. The artist through the wise use of pictorial matter succeeds in the difficult task of communicating what is hidden in the psyche of man. A Contemporary painting that cross the borders already explored by the art of tradition."
Salvatore Russo, contemporary critic curator Italy


Born in Avesta, Sweden and raised at an idyllic place by the Dalecarlia River, the influences of nature early became her greatest source of inspiration.
Studying abstract painting under the eminent artists Emilio Vedova, Zao Wou-Ki and Corneille, her style became an interesting combination of west and east, a mixture of poetic compositions, rhythm and texture. In her 3-dimensional paintings she experiments with different materials, for example dried sea-algae from the Swedish west coast. Her successful solo exhibition "Seascapes" at Broadway Gallery on Manhattan in New York showed paintings and an installation in that technique. A book about her art, "Infinite Forms,"was published 2009 by NY Arts and is for sale at www.amazon.com.
