Svenska Dagbladet, Stig Johansson, Saturday, Oct. 30th, 1999. (Translation Anna)
Galleri Mejan, Peter Köhler, until November 3rd. With all due deference to video and installation art, there are definitely those of the Royal College of Fine Art's students who paint! Someone who certainly does is Peter Köhler. The first room of Gallery Mejan is one great billowing ocean of colour, featuring both small and large painting. Though it appears abstract, his art has a very concrete presence to it. The colours voluptuosly twist and turn into each other in a baroque extravagance. It is suddenly like seeing Rubens step forward in a modern, flourishing edition.
