Malin Cederlund

Malin Cederlund appears to share a fascination that possessed the artists of the Pre-Raphaelite Movement: what exactly is the relationship between humans and nature? The Pre-Raphaelite’s imagined romantic dryads – humanesque creatures who shared their bodies with the trees - years later, Cederlund portrays a different story… 

Experimenting with mark making, Cederlund crafts surreal landscapes, her technique reminiscent of Peter Doig’s Ten Etchings. Instead of shining a spotlight on where humanity fits within nature, Cederlund uncovers a rawness, an unkempt state of wildness; she appears to answer an unspoken question: that humanity comes as an afterthought. We see the humans in her work only in the twist of a tree branch that resembles a wrist, or a softly etched trunk that reflects a woman’s torso.
