La Jolla, CA, November, 2016 - Monarch | Arredon Contemporary is pleased to present Connecting/Disconnecting: The push and pull of our daily lives and the impact on our personal relationships by Swedish born artist Asa Kvissberg. This solo exhibition will feature over twenty large and small scale pieces on a variety of media and will open with a reception on December 2nd, 2016 from 4-7pm at Monarch | Arredon Contemporary located at 7629 Girard Ave, Suite C2, La Jolla, CA 92037.
The work of Åsa Kvissberg provokes questions that inspire and invite thought rather than make definite statements. With her latest body of work titled “Connecting/Disconnecting” Åsa explores our increasingly complex relationship with technology. Through her works she asks, is technology making us more social? Giving us more time together? Or are we losing touch of each other? Her works reflects a state of pulling and pushing that has no end in our new evolved society.
Åsa Kvissberg received her Masters of Fine Art in Norwich University of the Art in England. She works mostly in a mixed media using oil tempera, ink, acrylics and collage, often in large scale. She is also well recognized for her printmaking through her work at many institutions in Sweden as well as being represented at several Biennales and Trienales. Most recently at the Kaliningrad biennale 2013 at Kaliningrad State Art Museum, "XI Biennal", Kaliningrad, Russia. Asa has exhibited in several Art museums including the Norrköpings Art Museum in Sweden, the Kystens Arve Museum in Norway and the Museo de Arte Moderno, Santa Domingo in the Dominican Republic to name a few. She is part of the permanent collection at five museums and multiple public collections in Sweden. With several shows a year, exhibiting, and teaching internationally, most of her time is spent in either her studio or traveling.
