27 January – 28 May 2023 Ann Edholm is one of our great Swedish painters. With an intimate connection to the materials and history of painting, Ann Edholm has developed her own image world. Her abstract and expressionist painting is based on the perception of a kind of equal relationship between man and painting. The works contain interpretations of art history and medieval legends, of Jewish deportations during Nazism and of growing up in the aftermath of a war. The exhibition The image presses against my eye is part of the in-depth work that has been going on since 2008 where Ann Edholm examines her background as the daughter of a mother from Berlin and a Germany during the Second World War. Ann Edholm is now showing several completely new works in RAVINE...

The weaver in Båstad weaves linen. A distinction is made between full linen and half linen. This means that we only use clean linen. Also in the warp. It gives a luster that shines. And a strength that stands up. We have been weaving whole linen since the forties and we do it in Sweden. Then we have full control over the quality and can also weave to order. We care about the craft and the tradition. One of our designs - David's harp - is from the 1600th century. If you want to know more, sign up for a guided tour below….
