Dina Isaeus-Berlin

b 1991 Stockholm, Sweden. Lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden.

ARTIST STATEMENT

Dina Isæus-Berlin is a Swedish painter. In the spring of 2017 she graduated with a BFA from Konstfack University of Arts, Craft and Design in Stockholm. She now lives and works in Stockholm.

Her process-based practice involves a search for the very essence of art making – what it means to create in the physical world. Her interest circles around the moment of becoming and how altered circumstances of that moment affects the outcome. This interest takes the form of a research done with an analytical approach to the intuitive making.

Dina Isæus-Berlin’s work asks questions about different types of knowledge, both intellectual but foremost practical, and how various layers of know-how can be reached through different states of mind. Her non-figurative paintings, often large in scale, show the marks of a body in motion. They become indexical – visual recordings that trace back to her movement, knowledge and current condition. The gesture is central to Isæus-Berlin’s practice and read alongside a variety of signs for other painterly languages, the meaning they convey seems to be shifting.
