SOLO EXHIBITION, INNER LANDSCAPE - IMPRESSIONS FROM SCOTLAND AT GALLERI KUNSTGRESS

August 6-16, 2020

The exhibition 'Inner landscape - Impressions from Scotland' was composed of selected works from, and inspired by my stay in the Scottish Highlands. The exhibition contains drawings, etchings and oil paintings.

 

In 2019, I was awarded a government scholarship by The Sawyer Gallery at Inverewe Garden and Estate in the Scottish Highlands owned by the National Trust of Scotland. As an ‘artist in residence’, I lived and worked in The Highlands in late summer and autumn. The assignment I was given was to interpret the Scottish landscape with Scandinavian eyes.
The Highlands of the Scots are today part of me. The exhibition's works testify to a presence in nature and mind, far from a stressful city life. Emotional use of color emphasizes the importance of nature and its interaction with the landscape of emotional life.

Galleri Kunstgress, Grønnegata 4a, 0350 Oslo, NO

Opening Thursday 6 August, 5 pm
Opening hours:
Thursday and Friday - 13.00-19.00
Saturday and Sunday - 11.00-17.00

DIALOGUE WITH DAVID SANDUM ON ANXIETY & DEPRESSION

June 12, 2020

Friday, June 12, 2020 at 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM UTC+02 - Forandringsrommet, Fossen 20, 1530 Moss, Norway​

Dialog med David Sandum om angst og depresjon - Fredag 12. juni fra kl 1830 til 2030

I det siste har psykisk helse vært et tema på alles lepper. Godt er det at det blir mer åpenhet om psykisk helse. Det er helt tydelig at det er noe som opptar oss. Og det er i grunnen helt naturlig, fordi vi alle har en psykisk helse. Veldig mange av oss kommer i kontakt med angst og depresjon i løpet av livet. Enten gjennom egen erfaring eller som pårørende.

En som har bidratt i stor grad til åpenhet om psykisk helse, er min venn, kunstner og forfatter, David Sandum. Han har skrevet en selvbiografisk bok om sin reise gjennom depresjon og kunst, og han har også blitt en flittig brukt foredragsholder om psykisk helse.

Fredag 12. juni kommer han til Forandringsrommet. Vi ser for oss at David holder et kort innlegg først og forteller litt fra sitt eget liv, og at vi etterpå åpner for dialog. Temaet vil være angst og depresjon og alt som er relevant for deg i forhold til psykisk helse.

Stress og utbrenthet som mange lider av i vårt samfunn gir grobunn for psykiske utfordringer. Vi vil derfor avslutte med noen helt enkle avspenningsøvelser og tips til hvordan å håndtere angst, depresjon og stress.

Du vil også få mulighet til å beundre Davids kunst på veggene og kjøpe hans trykk og/eller malerier hvis du ønsker det.

Vi håper å ha en uformell og meningsfylt kveld sammen med dere. Det blir satt ut noen stoler, og noen må sitte på matter og puffer.

Inngangspenger kr 100,- Påmelding: https://www.facebook.com/events/168640731236042/

Dørene åpner kl 1800 - Varmt velkommen!

EXHIBITED AT SAWYER GALLERY

Aug 17, 2019

Aug 3 - Sep 11, 2019, "Evolving Impressions", by David Sandum - Sawyer Gallery - 'meet the artist' event Sat Aug 17th at 2pm.


My work is “driven by the moment”, making strong use of color to express my emotions as I paint. As a result, it is difficult to predict what I will produce from day-to-day; whether I'll be working with oils, watercolor, ink or charcoal, or writing.


This exhibition began with blank walls, and as my residency progressed, the walls filed with my work. I painted in the garden or in public areas wherever possible, encouraging interaction with visitors and staff.


The exhibition launch was part-way through my residency, with live painting or drawing, and the launch of my limited edition Inverewe inspired etchings.
