Immense arctic landscapes or the smallest detail plucked from a river’s frosty edge - cracks, fragments and the drift of oceans, and ice, rock and streams. Within the undulating veils of Agneta Ekholm’s paintings an intensely active world is discernible. Resonant forms ebb through the central plane of her canvases, submerging our field of vision in their folds. As we follow each cascading contour, an increased sense of depth is revealed. Pure white works against jet black create a series of translucent, cumulative mid-tones with clean monochrome edges that define an evolving mass of energy and flux. Coalescent and sensual, these forms suggest the existence of some eternal space, at once cosmic and subjective.
