This is the second solo exhibition of Tomas Hed at Arthall and a continuation of his “Perspectives” about the human condition. Focusing on what we are made of – mud, blood and dreams- he presents a series of paintings that are reflections of our limitations and, at the same time, of our will to overreach them, consciously or unconsciously. Femininity, human rationality, sanity, individuality, mortality, animality… are some of the issues that are molded on his canvas. The majority of the artworks are done recently, but the exhibition will also include some paintings of his days in Stockholm, more than 20 years ago.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Tomas Hed, originally from Sweden, lives in Gozo, where he lets his imagination and creativity go wild. Here he has found his place to exploit his talents: composing music, writing and, of course, painting. He worked for many years as an Art Director in Stockholm, having his own studio in Gamla Stan, the old part of the city. As a seeking youth Tomas developed in an artistic atmosphere, living in a community with other artists.
Always polemical, provocative and with strong opinions, it’s impossible to be indifferent to his creations. The spirit of his art is inspired by an indomitable character, with a special obsession for challenging values, or “bubbles” as he calls them, of our daily life.
