”Passagen" ("The passage"), ”Passagen”, acrylic on paper by Lynn Gustafsson. Bought by Kiruna konstgille.
Lynn Gustafsson’s artwork is often an interpretation of nature that transcends boundaries, a mix of northern Sweden and California – hot and cold, subarctic climate and sun-drenched landscapes. Her abstract expressionist paintings pulsate with life and movement.
“I don’t paint from nature but in many of my paintings I express the associations that nature invokes in me in colour and form. In other paintings I express an inner world created in a way that cannot be explained, but which is available for discovery,” Lynn Gustafsson explains.
