Sometimes we fall in love with work, style, fashion or art. Konsthopp first met her at the “opening” of her majestic solo exhibition “Dreams of Salikon.” We fell in love with her immediately. Her name is Lindalovisa Fernqvist and is our participant in this week “artist talk”.

Lindalovisa described her easily-recognized style as:

My sketches are always drawn directly by hand and are very detailed. Some may see it as a slow and protracted technique but for me it is really meditative. By working thoroughly with my illustrations I strive to unite the beautiful and the detailed with some sort of melancholic undertone. My inspiration comes from music, nature and people’s behavior as well as from fashion and vintage photographs.

You can read the full interview here and see some examples of Lindalovisa´s work.

About the 10.000 hours, we hope she is right! Still counting; 9899 hours, 28 minutes and 32 seconds…

“DREAMS OF SALIKON”

Vernissage: 15th of April 2011, Meeting ROOM (Stockholm)

The beautiful illustrations of Lindalovisa Fernqvist was the center of the attention during this night combined with art, fashion, music and wine.

Fashion-drawings encounter the dark shadows of a forest in these illustrations were the artist special touch of details made the exhibition both majestic and captivating.

A Konsthopp favorite was a film-clip made by Lindalovisa, showing the art-work in process. At some point almost hypnotizing but at the same time a really interesting insight into the artistical procedure of this talented young woman.
