Art for Relief II (11/24)


My paintings take their inspiration from the lakes, forests and skies of a vast Swedish landscape and a very particular Nordic light. This is where they begin like snapshots from a road trip or plotted points on a map.
A solitary hunting hide beside a forest road, thistly with dry branches, its spikes like a feathered nest. Solemn snowscapes have long shadows and fierce pink skies. Hot lupins, dark pines, dripping lakes and quiet fires. The distant echoes of the groaning, warping and thumping of a lake trapped under ice.
This is a land where the imagination runs away and the uncanny resides, where the real and imagined co-exist.
I am enticed by precarious boundaries, where land meets lake and light meets dark. In these unsteady places you are neither at risk nor safe but feel both at once.
I weave threads of paint onto coloured linens and canvases and make exaggerated, luminous, livid landscapes. I invite an escape into a kind of utopia, where you can smell freedom and pine in the air, a place I think I know. Yet these paintings tell darker tales of tension, foreboding and longing, I dress them up in the fabric and costume of colour and light.
