Bo Alström is a history painter, a uniquely modern representative of an ageold tradition. At the same time, he is a philosophical and profoundly intuitive modern artist. He empathizes with the experiences of people in distant times and places while maintaining a highly-calibrated sensitivity to color, form, and composition. Alström’s curiosity about human character and motivation, about past events, and about the world in which he lives finds expression in exhilarating images where abstraction and representation and description and imagination collide, interact, and harmonize.
