Bertil Hansson Artist Bio:

Visual artist, painter, engraver, photographer.Born 1950 in Lysekil, Sweden.Living and working in Sweden and south of France.With a remarkable power of observation, the Swedish artist Bertil Hansson focuses his sight onto the most insignificant detail and lifts it out of its place in the entire context. He charges it with magic and space whether the technique is painting, graphic arts or, as is his latest passion, photography. With great intensity he also absorbs the surrounding and transforms reality into abstraction in a way that makes his pictures stand out as familiar for us. This is intensified by the associations they give to different directions in art history.His artistic career has developed rapidly ever since the new millennium when he moved to the south of France and settled in the village of Goult. Since then his artistic desire has felt no constraints and his productivity has grown impressively. He is now in great demand from Scandinavian art galleries and is making several exhibitions every year, especially in Norway and Sweden.After having worked mainly with watercolours and tempera Bertil Hansson a decennium ago started adding a new technique to his repertoire, engravings. In Helsingborg in the South of Sweden he found a partner in Atelj Larsen. Since 1996 he has developed a fertile collaboration with the master himself, Ole Larsen. All of that production has recently been published in an attractive book, Hansson hos (chez) Larsen.The lastest passion though for Hansson, is photography and he brings his pictures together under a variation of themes. There is indeed a great relationship between his photographs, his graphics and his paintings. The search for light and the way he makes his motives float, create the idea of space as well as a faint yet warm feeling of uncertainty.||| Text - Britt NordbergJournalist of CultureReviewer of visual art and theatre
