Bjarne Melgaard, Selected Works

Rådmansgatan 15

April 17 – June 5, 2021

Press Release

Bohman-Knäpper is pleased to present an intimate exhibition of selected works by Bjarne Melgaard.

Melgaard started out in the mid 1990ʼs with a neo expressionistic, frantic style of painting, sculpture and installation. His art deals with the dark side of humanity, such as self-destruction, deviant sexuality and odd religious beliefs. It provides an insight into subcultures and parallel worlds that exists alongside the world of normality - often discussing, investigating and pushing the boundaries of societal acceptance. He has an intense way of almost attacking the canvas with paint. The brush strokes and splashes of paint form a base for an explicit and perhaps offensive narrative. Organized chaos is one of his main principles both regarding composition and content, focusing on capturing the tension and impromptu of the creative moment.

Open by appointment only. For inquiries please contact the gallery.​
