Christina Hedlund Artist Bio:

Born in Soderhamn 1952 Since 1972 living in Stockholm Artist´s Statement Glued to the wall at my studio since many years, a postcard; Wolfgang Tillman’s Muscle. A movement filled with light and air, a muscle of playful cooperation. I aim in my own work to deliver an emotion of dissolvent and a new beginning. Something of the act of painting itself, the reoccurring transformations. An emotional and sensuous connectedness to the canvas is important to me. My grandmother Emma cultivated flax and wove from it sheets and towels. I often helped cleaning the eggs from her hens. My delight in the medium of tempera maybe a cord firmly holding me to my past? To mix and apply the first layer of paint to the canvas is pure pleasure! The need to shape and organize is more time consuming and has to be done and redone for as many layers it takes, till the unexpected develops. Raw and spontaneous must be the first impression. Should I be successful there is humor, playfulness and simplicity to draw from the painting. One of my latest paintings, Homage a Bèla Tarr is a semicolored picture, partly dirty, partly shiny blank surface. It may be a landscape, a memory not devoid of pain. I aim at using the colour sparse, simple and heavy of meaning. Beat and press the pigments till a diamond of who knows what energy will reappear? Christina Hedlund Stockholm September 2014
