Delivery & returns information
Hellberg employs her distinctive detailed and layered approach to this newly imagined interior. A selection of literal references to Schjerbeck’s works which Hellberg finds most personally meaningful can be found throughout the composition.
Attention to detail, versatile painting and printing techniques and a skilled use of colour are strong qualities of Hellberg’s work. Her interiors contain a combination of real, remembered and imagined spaces with countless details: artworks, indoor plants, decorative objects and furniture. People hardly ever feature in her works, but Hellberg’s interiors feel inhabited. The charged atmosphere within her works stems from a tension between presence and absence: something may just have just happened or someone might be about to walk in.
“Schjerfbeck was so versatile, the self-portraits and landscapes come to mind very quickly when thinking of her work, but I also find her still lifes extremely sensitive and beautiful.”
Each print is sold in a portfolio.
