Erik Thor Sandberg’s cerebral paintings in the “Bloom” series are both fanciful and disconcerting. The artist is known for creating work within the magical realism tradition, with narratives packed with mythology and elegantly rendered bodies. Sandberg was last featured on HiFructose.com here.
“Sandberg is known for his masterful oil paintings of the human figure and landscape,” a statement says. “Creating inventive imagery ranging from panoramic to intimate, Sandberg pushes the skillful illusionism of master painting to the contemporary edge of Magic Realism. His work has been exhibited at public and private venues internationally, including the Baltimore Museum of Art, Baltimore, MD, and is in numerous private collections.”
