Peter Öhrnell’s motifs are at the interface between nature and culture; the zone in which the human habitat is shaped. Balancing among almost abstract colour surfaces are structures suggesting organic landscapes, architecture or fragments of interiors. Shrubs, clouds, rock folds, snow piles, cavities, bush wood, meet a house, roof, facade, deck chair. Intense, sonorous colours in steadily constructed compositions give the paintings a kinship with music. In his exhibition at Bildmuseet, Öhrnell presents new works from 2018–2021.
