Star Of The Week
Swedish artist Anette Lillhammar was born in Stockholm and lived and worked in Gothenburg. Between 2017 until 2020, she and her daughter Sofia ran an art gallery in Gothenburg.
She receives energy from her subconscious, practicing meditation before commencing any creative work. She doesn’t predetermine what she is going to paint. She feeds the canvas with energy, love, color, and structure. She uses acrylic and oil on linen canvas. After a while, enigmatic faces and odd symbols make their way on canvas. Works that tell the sentiments felt by the figures represented. Anette, through a figure I call sublime, articulates the observer her stories.
Stories, whose beauty seduces the observer’s eyes, who cannot do anything but observe them with dreamy eyes. The fine texture and the cultured language make these works true masterpieces. Masterpieces, free from external conditioning destined to last in time.
Her artworks were exhibited in art galleries in Sweden, USA (New York), Italy (Roma, Florence, Verona, Palermo, Lecce, Milano), France (Paris, Monaco), Spain (Barcelona), Morocco, Germany (Berlin, Hamburg) and Greece. Her artworks were published in art books/magazines, and she has received numerous international Art Awards. She is represented on Artsy.net and was in the prestigious Italian catalog “50 International Contemporary Artists to invest in”.
