Perspectives is the main component in Linneas pantings which are often huge, mostly in the size of 240 x 240 cm. The images are rooms rather than people - it is far from being figurative.
"I want the painting to be something more than a painting. Not only a window or a picture in itself. Instead, an entrance into something else. I work a lot with what perspective do with the viewer. It manipulates the viewer", says Linnea who is currently working hard for her forthcoming solo exhibition with Cecilia Hillström, opening on 6 of April.
"This exhibition will be a bit different from what I usually do. The paintings are smaller than before and also in different colours. They feel like Norrland (northern Sweden), if one can say so. It will be exciting to see what happens in the room".
"In the painting process of making the work everything goes pretty quickly" she says. A painting can take anywhere from a week to a month. But most importantly, nothing should appear perfect.
"It's important for me that the paintings aren't too polished and perfect. I want the painting to feel honest and not to plastered. In the distance the paintings look very geometric and perfect but as you get closer to it you can see the speed and the honest feeling".
