Torbjörn Johansson

(Sweden, 1959)

Torbjörn Johansson's works are based on an exploratory painting and have in exhibitions and public independent works examined the relationship between colour and our sense organs, not only the sense of sight but also tactility and our ability of spatial orientation. Johansson wants to expand our experience of colour as materiality, medium, and experience.

Here, Torbjörn Johansson's art is in dialogue with the 1970s Light and Space movement with, among others, James Turell and Robert Irwin.

Torbjörn Johansson is part of various artistic collaboration projects to gain access to different tempos and artistic choices as a contrast to his own work in the studio.
For example, "Muskot” (nutmeg), an artist collective that started in 2020 with the aim of investigating collective processes, and "southeast/southwest", a duo project since 2016 where nature and its forces are in focus. “Go-Go Collective” since 2018 is an international artist collective where purpose is to explore new forms of collaboration, artistic practice, and international collaborations.

2018 Johansson also joined “Go-Go Collective”, an international artist collective where purpose is to explore new forms of collaboration, artistic practice, and international collaborations.
