Lars Lerin is awarded the Åke Nerman’s Memorial Scholarship 2017. Congratulations!
“The Association of Arts wants to award Lars Lerin the Scholarship of artist Åke Nerman’s memorial of 2017 for his paintings and stories that reaches the fragile areas of us humans, that points out to what we all can recognize in each other. Lars Lerin highlights the beauty of the countryside, and gives us hope that, despite all contradictions, life is worth living. His paintings and words are stories of different worlds.
They make us feel the grandeur of the small and the value of everyday life.
The award is for his great ability to combine what the eye sees with what the hand interprets, all in an untiring interplay between water, pigment and a paper.
Lars Lerin has the unique ability to see and interpret the world so that the rest of us can come a little closer to life itself.”
