Linnea Andersson – describes her process this way: “Through the abstract leaf I can mediate a human language without a human expression. The ongoing investigation of how to describe an emotion without words is central in my paintings. This resistance is a constant force in my work: an impossible bend, a new medium or a forbidden colour combination to try out. I need an obstacle to find my interest to make an image. There have to be a fence to climb. But it is also the undertaking of speaking without words. The leaves speak for me, writing my diary through their wobbly shape and the space in-between them and the outline of the canvas.”
