Galleri Riis

Fredrik Söderberg


Fredrik Söderberg (b. 1972) lives and works in Stockholm. Söderberg's paintings contain images from a variety of sources that have been woven together in an ornate story. He is devoted to a spiritual and philosophical search, and his meticulous working processes can be seen as tools for meditation on the existential queries that infuse his works. Söderberg has exhibited at Magasin III and the Swedish History Museum in Stockholm, and his work is represented in public collections such as Moderna Museet, Stockholm, Magasin III Museum & Foundation for Contemporary Art, Stockholm, Public Art Agency, Sweden and The Nordic Watercolour Museum, Sweden.
