About the collection

All paintings take their starting point in spring. Rushing streams, the evening light, birdsong, vegetation and life.

The paintings are inspired from places that appealed to me a little extra, but also more subtle patterns and shapes in nature that I am hooked on.

Stones have been picked and broken down into a thin pigment powder that has been given new life in the paintings. I have also used coal and ash that I collected from various places we visited during the winter. Most paintings also contain elements of hand-printed leaves and twigs that I have picked around Västerbotten.

Paintings of natural pigments

I pick stones, earth, clay, charcoal and ash to create my own pigments for my paintings.

I work the stones with hammer, mortar and sieve the powder until it is fine enough to use as pigment for paint. I then add a binder and the millions of old stones are given new life as color in my art.

"Earth pigments are not lifeless rocks. They are constantly circulating, they are mysterious metamorphic agents of art made by complex ecologies, biomes, volcanoes, extinct creatures, fault lines, sea-floors, swamps, deserts, fertile soils, and dead people and their living waste." - Heidi Gustafson

My art depicts nature in both the big and the small; as in natural structures shaped by the seas, the colors of the sky and vast landscapes.

"My hope is that the viewer of my art will feel safe and calm, almost like a kind of healing power"
