BRITA GRANSTRÖM; ‘EXPRESSING LOCKDOWN’

Thompson’s Gallery, Aldeburgh

Every summer Swedish painter, Brita Granström goes back to her native Sweden to paint images of life in the Scandinavian countryside but due to lockdown this year she has been unable to travel there for the first time since she moved over here in 1993. As a result she has painted a series of paintings from her everyday life at home during lockdown near Berwick upon Tweed. Shying away from using her top floor sea view studio, she instead adapted to a portable studio to begin making a series of paintings capturing her family’s daily life around the kitchen, porch and garden.

This one woman show of her paintings reflects what was an initial fear of what was to come and evolve into calmer and more reflective works. ‘Refraction of Light’ echoes the idea of isolation and also a more playful look at refraction and glass. The images of vases of plants and flowers show life-force and the power of nature – as seen in ‘Radishes on VE Day’ and ‘Self Portrait with Angelica’- while in the background life continues, chores being done, windows being cleaned, garden being tended and washing being hung.

This collection of paintings are above all a celebration of life in times of adversity and depicts how life carries on regardless.
