Featured Artist
Ingela Johansson

Painting is and has always been my way of making sense of what is happening in the world. My process is to go out in nature or the cityscape around me, come back to sit in meditation, and then paint what I have experienced, inspired by colors, emotions, and senses around me. I have been fortunate to meet, discuss and live with people from many cultures and see color in different landscapes and that influences and changes my art.”

For Ingela Johansson, the universality of emotions, senses, and colors is what inspires art. By creating in nature and in combination with meditation, her brush can flow freely, often creating pieces that may evoke a certain feeling in her. Ingela was born in Sweden and educated in London, Stockholm, and Borås.

The Colors & Emotions exhibition is a collection of emotions expressed through color. And the best part is that we will all interpret them differently, depending on our own emotional state. If any of the paintings resonate with you, then Ingela has achieved her goal.

“Color & Emotion is a celebration and exploration of feelings. Painted from meditation while listening to music. Some are raw with just a few brushstrokes; some are built up layer after layer. I have always been fascinated by how colors bring out feelings, and how we translate them is often related to how we look at color in the landscape and culture around us. When I did the curation for this exhibition, the selection was different. If I could feel a painting in my gut, it made the cut”.
