Fredrik’s sculptures are not abstractions, they are not even abstract, but highly concrete. They are images hewn from the rock. They are incarnated from mother earth, from matter herself…

At any given time, there is someone doing something distinctly different. Something no one else can do, or even try. Something which, in what is both a hypersensitive and cynically-ironic art scene, appears independent enough to slip in and out of the conversation unaffected.

by Tommy Olsson, art critic Morgenbladet

It is difficult to criticise the sculptures of Fredrik K.B. without casting doubt on all human experience – which is an amusing thought until you realise this also applies to your very own experience…

It all started with a dream I had one night as a little boy. In this dream I walked into the mountain area called Jotunheimen to escape from all the people…

Today it is 20 YEARS since I completed the work on my first marble sculpture. This was the beginning of a wonderful, but somtimes difficult path - I want to shout out a *THANK YOU* to all who helped me when it was bumpy and all of you who have belived that I can bring something that, in its tiny way, can make a difference in this world. I send you my best thoughts and a lot of love from the island where my wonderful new atelier is being built. ...

This new sculpture is cut from Spectrolite from Finland. The crystals are amazing, but only to be seen when looked at from the right angle with the right light... humble, not obvious beauty - the best kind! 😊 if interested, please contact @gallerisemmingsen ...
