BIO

Dina Isæus-Daggfeldts’ work springs from the complexity of human knowledge, making  every painting a process-driven exploration. Her images bear marks of automatic gestures, traces of a body in motion. The large, calligraphic brushstrokes are then challenged by fields of more elaborate nature. The results are paintings defined by kinesthetic energy, spatial ambiguities and a compelling tension formed in the contrast between strokes shaped by physical knowledge and the slow, meditative layers. By a method of continuously learning and unlearning the movements of the brush she pushes the painting process to unfamiliar territories in a continuous desire to move forward. It is a practice in close conversation with Isæus-Daggfeldt search for the principles of how to live. 

Dina Isæus-Daggfeldt, born 1991, lives and works in Stockholm, SE. She holds an MFA from Konstfack University of Arts, Craft and Design in Stockholm. Isæus-Daggfeldt has been exhibited at Fullersta Gård, Nicolai Wallner Gallery, Copenhagen, Färgfabriken, Liljevalchs, Konstnärshuset and at Gerichtshöfe, Berlin, with Enter Art Foundation. She has been awarded with grants from both Royal Swedish Academy of Fine Arts and Swedish Arts Grants Committee, among others.
