Natural landscapes, organic shapes, subconscious and imaginative; these are just a few of the elements that characterize the artworks of Cornelia Gullberg. The artist grew up surrounded by nature in Falsterbo, south of Sweden and Laguna Niguel, Southern California. Cornelia’s interest in art and design began at an early age when a lot of her time would be spent creating and fantasizing in the Falsterbo art atelier that belonged to her grandfather, Jerker Wessfeldt, who remains an inspiration to this day. Here, she found herself fascinated by different materials, surfaces and textures and would explore various shapes and techniques. This penchant and curiosity grew stronger with the experience of how different color pigments interacted with each other in different contexts.
A color palette of earthy tones, oil paint, raw textures on linen canvas, these works transform the space they occupy, creating an ambiance within the room.
The materiality and sensual qualities of oil paint are important elements of Cornelia’s process. She is fascinated by the way in which paint can express feelings that cannot be put into words, somehow conveying an emotional harmonic motion through the mysterious process of painting.
Today Cornelia shares her most treasured painting techniques to spread and cultivate creativity in other individuals' lives. Read more about Art Therapy classes.
