My brother-in-law Peter Köhler is not only a very nice guy, but also a successful artist. He regularly exhibits his work at Magnus Karlsson’s gallery, one of Stockholm’s most prestigious venues. Peter’s next show there is scheduled for 9 Jan. through 7 Feb. and is titled “Black Magic”.
“A study visit to the Museum of Witchcraft in Boscastle, Cornwall — where Peter Köhler was given access to the museum’s collections, photo archives and library — and repeated travels in China form points of departure. Peter Köhler works with spontaneous figuration and improvisation, but some of the content is taken from sketches made during his travels. Another source of inspiration is the artist Austin Osman Spare.”
