The gallery focuses on international contemporary art and represents both well-established names and young emerging artists. With a special interest in outdoor sculpture and public commissions, a collaboration began in 1994 with the real estate company Balticgruppen in Umeå, to create the sculpture park, Umedalens Skulpturpark. In the summer of 2016 GSA Gallery initiated an outdoor sculpture project at Djurgården in Stockholm together with the Royal Djurgården Administration, presenting solo exhibitions until the summer of 2018 with Tony Cragg, Eva Hild and Jaume Plensa.

Featured artists

Johan Scott's body of work exudes intensity, where vibrant colours converge in striking contrasts. However, far from being daunting, this intensity emanates a warm and enveloping ambiance. The canvases occasionally evoke a tactile sense of roughness, inviting contemplation of how the hand might glide across the surface, shaping both peaks and valleys. It is as if the realms of cave painting and graffiti have coalesced and juxtaposed themselves within his paintings.

Johan Scott was born in 1953 in Mariehamn, Åland, and lives and works in Stockholm. Scott was educated at The Royal Institute of Art 1976–81, Stockholm. He has worked as Professor at the The Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm 1997–2007 and as Deputy Vice-Chancellor at The Royal Institute of Art 2002–2007. In 2002, he was elected Member of The Royal Swedish Academy of Fine Arts. He has exhibited extensively throughout Europe and the U.S. His works are represented in prominent collections in Sweden and internationally such as Moderna Museet, Stockholm, The Gothenburg Museum of Art, Gothenburg, Kiasma, Helsinki and Ateneum in Helsinki.

Katrin Westman

Katrin Westman guides the viewer through a compelling odyssey across her canvases in her evocative and abstract paintings. Within these works, one discovers tangible imprints of her artistic process and a profound understanding of colour. The artistic journey starts with an exploration of art history, she has found inspiration from Baroque masters like Bernini and Rubens and the influence is evident in the dramatic dynamics, textured layers, and pulsating energy of her paintings. Westman has described her practice as: “In order to be in a constant movement between reality and fiction, I work with three-dimensional and flat surfaces, with sculpture in my mind and my hands in the colour.”

Katrin Westman, born in 1987 in Örebro, Sweden, graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Umeå in 2015. Today lives and works in Östra Ämtervik, Sweden. Works by Katrin Westman can be found in the collections of Stockholm Konst, Bonnier Konstförening, SAK (the Swedish General Art Association), and Kristenhamns Konstmuseum. In 2014, she was the youngest ever to be awarded Kristenhamns Konstmuséum young artist scholarship. In 2015, she was awarded scholarships from the Foundation Anna-Lisa Thomson, and the Eva and Hugo Bergman Memorial Fund and in 2017 she received Vera and Göran Agnekils scholarship for younger artists.

Bettina Pousttchi

Bettina Pousttchi’s sculptural works offer a profound exploration of her fascination with the configurations of public space, frequently derived from urban fixtures such as street bollards, crowd barriers, and bike racks. In her recent series, 'Vertical Highways', Pousttchi transforms crash barriers into sculptural forms. The vertical orientation and modular application of these prefabricated elements alter the observer's spatial perception, imbuing the artwork with architectural allusions. By repurposing structures designed for the regulation of public spaces, these works critically engage with themes of crowd control and crowd direction—issues that have gained heightened relevance in contemporary discourse.

Bettina Pousttchi was born in Mainz in 1971. She lives and works in Berlin. She studied at the Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf and graduated from the Whitney Independent Study Program in New York.
