Oskar Nilsson

Is it political to be lost in the forest? 

Oskar Nilsson’s work is rooted in a romantic, expressive tradition, from van Gogh to Nordic folk-tales to teenage punks of today. It’s a world of (pseudo) alchemical rituals where Kate Winslet is placed on the altar and the air echoes with Ingmar Bergman’s voice. It is painting that takes a tour through subterranean landscapes of desire and lust.
