Gladstone Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of works by Stockholm based artist Cecilia Edefalk from her series of botanical drawings from the late 1970s, alongside a series of short films. This expansive body of works on paper and film, which has only been shown in full at Nordiska Akvarellmuseet, Skärhamn, alongside watercolors by Hilma af Klint, meticulously document the native plants of beaches and other natural sites along the coastline of Europe from a series of significant road trips the artist took. Minimal yet layered, informative but abstract, these methodical compositions form a bridge between the artist’s ethereal, conceptual practice and the physical world from which man y of her ideas are borne. Edefalk has distinguished herself as a pioneering artist who continually takes inspiration from history, memory, and experience, transforming these modalities into deeply spiritual works that connect to nature, light, and her imagination. Through the artist’s chosen mediums, namely drawing, painting, sculpture, and film, Edefalk forms visual representations of complex, indescribable, or everyday phenomena through the materials she molds and projects.
