Margaretha Bååth and Bo Mossberg, January 12 – February 3, 2019

By on January 3, 2019


The artist, illustrator and musician Bo Mossberg is back in Väsby Konsthall! Mossberg (f. -35) has illustrated a large number of botanical books. Also books on insects such as Humlor in Sweden (2012) and appreciated children’s books. Among the most recently published are the Orchids in Europe (2017) and the Nordic Flora (2018). Last time, January 2017, Mossberg’s work filled the entire art hall. The audience streamed to from the whole country. This time he has invited the artist Margaretha Bååth. About his new exhibition says Mossberg “I want to do an alternate exhibition with, among other things, a theme around the Bergaskogen forest in Upplands Väsby. It is a beautiful pile of woodland with many worth protecting vascular plants and fungi. A small series of pictures from our site in Runby I also want to show and pictures from songbooks for children and from the books about the ant Sofi.”

Margaretha Bååth (b. 44) is educated at the Kew School of Botanical Illustration, Royal Kew Gardens in London. She has run her own gallery, Botanart, in Stockholm and has exhibited her own art around Sweden. Among other things, at Linnaeus Hammarby in the spring of 2016 when the book Herbationes Uppsalienses was also published, in collaboration with Mariette Manktelow. Margaretha predominantly picks up her motifs from nature in Sweden and says about her painting “In my painting my horizon is close – there is everything clear. My center of concentration is the center of the flower where the horizon is experienced perceived from a bumblebees look – in a sea of color where the bumblebee sits and wallow in the middle of the food!”
