Elisabeth Westerlund

In Elisabeth Westerlund's art one can recognize the drives to restructure and transform, qualities that make her works to defy quick interpretation. She uses everyday objects that we all recognize from another context, such as pens, plastic knives, fabric cutouts, building materials or like in her more recent large canvasses with cutouts of photographs and added embroidery. When looking at her work one becomes immediately aware of its structure, sometimes organic and wildly unstructured, but more often precisely calculated.
