‘A Feast for the Eyes’ : Elina Flyrin
Elina Flyrin creates imagery that simultaneously feels alien and familiar, with a multidisciplinary practice that includes drawing, painting, and textiles.
Originally from Stockholm, Sweden, she graduated from Goldsmiths University of London, Fine Art in 2019, after which she relocated to Brighton.
Within her imagery, boundaries dissolve into abstraction: boundaries between the physical and the intangible, the interior and exterior. Her work can be interpreted as an exploration, a search for answers, although sometimes to rhetorical questions. Regardless of material, organic shapes emerge from their surface, leaving the audience with a feeling of being swept away with them.
Selected group exhibitions include: In and between, Bermondsey Project Space, London (2021); Skimmer 2019, Vrångsholmen, Sweden (2019); Everything Must Go, Laurie Grove Baths, London (2019); Messy Bodies, St. Hatcham Church, New Cross, London (2018); 13Festivalen, Konstepidemin, Gothenburg (2018).
