Just happened to walk by an exhibition in Vallingby City (13 km west of Stockholm) with wonderfully peaceful paintings by Swedish artist Fredrik Landergren.
There are landscapes drenched in evening light and interiors so quiet, with picture perfect images so still that you can hear the clock ticking. His style is realistic, obviously painted pretty much from photographs, but this frozen quality, may cause something in you to come alive, like in a meditation.
The exhibit is arranged by Temporart, a concept developed by Västmanlands Läns Museum and runs until April 21 2013.
