Let it flow | Linnea Strid | 2009

Although the blog generally presents accomplished artists, many times I prefer to publish work of contemporary artists. This is the case of Linnea Strid, a Swedish girl that, in her 20s, is present in many exhibitions across Europe.

Strid works expressive portraits and she is particularly interested in the effect of light in moving water. This is why she will include showers, pools and faucets in her paintings. Let it flow was the painting I liked the most because, beyond the incredibly details of the hand and the water, the background with the stainless steel sink is familiar and very known to us. The painting, although complex, is delicate and unpretentious.

Despite hyper realism is in fashion right now, Strid brings new themes and approaches to the table.

  2. The difference in sharpness and noise grain is more evident as you examine detail, particularly here where the original images have been scaled down and compressed for publication, losing much of their detail.

  3. We’ve collected the best of the responses below and on the following pages, including Seales initial missives. She does have a point about air mattresses, though.
