About Irene Gronwall

My father was a painter, I grew up in the midst of paint and turpentine. But I trained as an actor. During my acting career, I have always been drawing and painting. I think painting and acting are similar in many ways. You have a blank canvas or an empty stage. You have to fill them both with yourself!

I have been an abstract painter, for the past 20 years, and I paint layers upon layers. I am interested in what lays underneath each layer; in life, in nature, in people, in actions – in things I see in everyday life. Painting is a process as life is a process. What do we show and what do we hide? I want the viewers to use their emotions and hopefully become moved. Experience the painting – rather than “understand”.

I love colour and I discipline myself sometimes to use less colour, in order to learn more about movement and rhythm. I often work in series of two or three paintings. I am inspired by American expressionism such as Kline and Motherwell. I love their boldness, their trust in the brushstroke and that it is enough. I also love calligraphy. I have my studio in Stockholm, where I also live.
