About the Artist
Swedish artist Anette Lillhammar was born 1963 in Stockholm. She lives and work in Gothenburg.
She unearths her subject matter from the energy of her subconscious, practicing meditation
before commencing any creative work. The painter approaches the canvas with intuition over a deliberate intention. She doesn't predeterminate what is going to be painted. It is the canvas itself
that choose a motive while she feed it with energy, color and structure. She uses acrylics on a linen canvas and will often employ her hands and fingers to mold the paint. The work themselves seem to reflect the dim, spasmodic light and deep spaces of forgotten dreams. Sometimes a human face will swim languidly to the surface of the canvas. At other times, rational meaning is obscured in abstract color and odd symbols, and the viewer will find their own way to communicate with her artwork.
Anette Lillhammar developed her painting principles from the ancient Vedic scribes from India.
”(The scribes”) tell us that just a seed knows it will become a flower, so do we have all knowledge
of ourselves and life within us, ”says Lillhammar. Sometimes she stops for a moment awaiting the
”art goddess” to come and wake the painting to life. Her artworks has been shown in Sweden,
Milan, New York, South France/Monaco and with upcoming events and exhibitions in, Morocco, Florence, Verona, Lecce and Hamburg. She has received several Art Awards in Italy and she has
been published in different Art Magazines in New York and Italy.
