Exhibition: Soft Bite
The title encompasses the city and its people in many of its layers. The two contrasting words in the show title soft and bite are each other's opposites, an attempt at palliation for something that you know will hurt. Tasting the atmosphere. In urban language, the words take a different meaning - soft indicating love and bite to rip off, steal, take, copy or that it stings.
In Kindberg’s paintings a fragment of a frame of the city life is given centre stage. Playing on the notion of the tragicomic in a society that is both civilised and ridiculous. With this humorous approach acting as a portal in her paintings, enables us to explore other, more unsavoury emotions.
The Swedish artist Sally Kindberg studied at Goldsmiths, University of London and remained in London where she now lives and works.
