The artworks in the series I Bought You Flowers by artist Eline Martherus are characterised by the balance between light and dark, theappearance and disappearance of colours and shapes, with the colour indigo as the central point.
Without a preconceived plan and with materials such as brooms and brushes, Eline creates canvases full of movement and feeling, often on a large scale. In each work there is a coming and going of organic forms; sometimes clearly present in energetic hues of blue, other times very delicate, as if the paint seems to settle into the canvas like a water stain. The viewer can also find sacred geometric shapes in her canvases: “Everything in nature can be traced back to these shapes, just like that indigo symbolizes the blueprint of humans.” A sense of spirituality.
Eline draws her inspiration from people and their role in society: “Perhaps I translate it somewhat abstract, but it is about the dynamics between light and dark, about the appearance and disappearance of colours and shapes, just as it is the case with people and situations.” Eline hopes that the viewer will explore the boundaries of intention and the opposing forces of logic and intuition with her.
