Stina Rosenberg - Jag faller in i dig (I fall into you), 2012, oil and varnish on aluminium, diptych each 180 x 150 cm
Stina Rosenberg graduated with an MFA from the Academy of Fine Arts in Umeå in 2009. Since then she has exhibited her forceful, often large-scale, abstract painting in several solo and group exhibitions.
Stina Rosenberg works intuitively, using color and form in her focused, improvised method of painting. Prior to each studio session, parameters are chosen for which colors and utensils will be included in the process; the finished paintings are the final evidence of this process. These works are painterly stills, which embody the creative trajectory of their development. Their expression is forceful – in the underlayer, rich swaths of color are applied with large scrapers – yet at the same time sensitive, with its layers of feathery brushstrokes, frequently in broken, nearly ethereal colors. Stina seldom works on canvas; instead she prefers painting on fiberglass fabrics nailed directly to the wall, or on primed aluminum plates.
