The works of Ida Ekblad oscillate between an unrestrained imagination and her familiarity with, and allusions to, an art-historical tradition. Her paintings of the past five years, in particular, are courageous demonstrations of the relevance and feasibility of an expressive artistic gesture. But Ekblad does not necessarily repeat expression as an authentic and essentialist format.
Ekblad works in a variety of media—painting, sculpture, installation, performance, and poetry—simultaneously and without hierarchical distinction.
