At The Ode To we are always curious to learn more about creativity and artistry, so we asked artist Sara Pålsson to tell us a little bit about her life, her art and her sources of inspiration.
What do you call your series of artwork?
– I have named my series “Moments in motion”, since they capture moving bodies.
What technique have you used?
– I have used oil paint on structured linen paper because I am drawn to the rich, luscious quality of oil paint. I have also experimented with different brushstrokes, color palettes and textures to create depth and dimension in my work.
What inspired you to create the artworks you have made for The Ode To?
– Sun rays and shadows, life and soul, moving figures and dancing bodies, all of which are moments in motion, inspired me to paint this series.
Can you tell us about your background and how you came to be an artist?
– I have been painting my whole life, but I have been able to focus much more on it during the last couple of years. I have a day job as a landscape architect and I use whatever time I have outside that to paint, because I find that being in my studio and living out my fascination with colors and shapes boosts my creative energy.
How would you describe your art and aesthetics in three words?
– Moodiness, expressiveness, playfulness.
What we love about SARA PÅLSSON:
Emotion, liveliness and sentiment are a few words that come to mind when admiring Sara Pålssons artworks. Her paintings are alive with movement and reflect fleeting moments in motion in a one-of-a-kind way, it is captivating art that stands the test of time.
