Malin Gabriella Nordin often revisits familiar themes and musings about nature, dreams, growth, introspection and observation. Nordin is a visceral creator, her process is navigated by the dialogue taking place between her and the material, one action leading to another - the final outcome often a revelation even for her. She often moves between mediums, not shying away from applying her vision to unfamiliar materials. This openness has naturally led to Nordin amalgamating different techniques and ways of seeing which is evident in her recent work. Working with collage techniques and painting on different surfaces and materials has reared a unique eye for colour and composition. Her sculptures, often painted wood or metal, look like intricate works of art sprung from fertile soil, as if gifted to us from another realm. Colourful canvasses covered with churning abstractness are evocative of vegetation budding in super speed. A complete embracing of colour, texture and form are essential to Nordin’s way of creating. The relationship between artist and material is in this case one of complete synergy.
