About my work
In my paintings I use oil and acrylic colours combined with silkscreening. Silkscreening is a printing technique mostly used in textile and wallpaper design to make repetitive patterns. This technique has been a way for me to build up my paintings as collages. I am interested in what can be combined in a painting. The various repetitive silkscreen patterns, which are not always matchning, enables me to create depth and perspective.
Most of my work departs from one colour or a certain set of colours. It creates a frame of colour combinations which I then can work within. The paintings Yellow and Red, white and brown are examples of this. Yellow was a work process only focused on how yellow interact with other colours. My sketching is mostly in aquarelle where I look for new combinations. You can see more of sketches and work processes on my instagram account - @kristinahrafnhildurplasgard
