Artist Talk June 18 at What Art Can Do I 17.00 PM
The light and landscape play a major role in the paintings of Swedish artist Malin Persson (b. 1978, Gränna). Especially in memories of the dark Swedish forest landscape from her native region with its hidden paths and mysterious mood. And not to forget the Dutch landscape. A landscape of lines, of sky and water and the inevitable horizon. A landscape she experiences as ‘open’. After all, Persson has been living and working in Amsterdam for more than two decades
Persson has a romantic view of ‘the purity of nature’. But her search as an artist for the possibilities of abstraction led her to experiment with hard geometric forms. In a poetic interplay of figuration (the landscape) with geometric structures, she convincingly demonstrates that naturalistic representation and abstraction need not be mutually exclusive
On Sunday June 18, the artist will talk to Paul Wiegman about her work. There is the opportunity to ask questions while enjoying a drink.
