Formens frigörelse – Konsthantverk och design under debatt i 1960-talets Sverige
Nick Alm is a new book published in collaboration with Galleri Agardh & Tornvall. Born in 1985 in Eksjö, Sweden, Nick Alm entered the Florence Academy of Art in 2007, where he also held a position as a teaching assistant. After graduation in 2010, the artist received a scholarship to join The Hudson River Fellowship to paint landscapes. The following year, he studied with Odd Nerdrum in Norway and France before moving back to Sweden.
With contributions from Odd Nerdrum, Jeffrey Carlson and Bengt Tornvall, this richly illustrated book is the first publication featuring a collection of works by Nick Alm.
“Swedish painter Nick Alm uses a captivating painterly touch to explore humanity’s inherent insufficiencies. The artist speaks about his paintings as investigations of the individual psyche, rather than any kind of sweeping social commentary. Alm persistently explores human emotions at a raw, personal level.” – Jeffrey Carlson
