I have to admit I was losing heart trying to find this weeks artist of the week, until yesterday when, while browsing one of my favourite online magazines Juxtapoz I came across the work of Linnea Strid. To me her paintings look like the moment when the barriers go down and the pain you try to keep at arms length catches up with you. They are gorgeously fluid and wonderfully painted, you really feel the emotions that went into these paintings. The tones, the textures, the details are all so beautiful, so rich and somber. She has become one of my new painting hereos overnight and I'm very much looking forward to seeing what comes next....
