About Christina Hedlund

Born in Sweden, Soderhamn 1952
Since 1972 living in Stockholm

Artist´s Statement 3 October 2017

My work is about emotion and rhythm. It is not music, but colours also have a tune and can be repetitive, playful or heavy loaded. The world of materials always in a process of decay and transformation.
I don´t use sketches but start directly on the paper or canvas with a multitude of colours, creating a chaos, and my work is about solving this chaos into a structure and a rhythm. Taking away what I find not useful, adding sometimes forms, changing colours a lot, letting the picture go wherever. Ending up as crap or a picture that surprises me.
I am inspired by literature and music as well as painting. Anything “accurately “ formulated. Gerhard Richter is a painter I much appreciate. The rytm of the sun, the moon and the beat of the rain, the heart.
I wish my audience to find their own way into my painting. To look once, twice, for some time, and see different things, some detail. Get inspired to live and let live.
