About the work
Sigrid Holmwood
b. 1978
Follow

A self-described “peasant painter,” Sigrid Holmwood’s body of work is inspired by her experiences with back-to-the-land communities such as Swedish historical reenactors, California bohemians, and rural Chinese farmers. Using handmade paints mixed from 16th-century recipes, Holmwood’s vibrant, energetic canvases feature the people and environments she encounters during her research on contemporary peasant life. For Holmwood, these materials and subjects fuse seamlessly: “By using this persona of a ‘peasant painter’ and making all my paints and materials from scratch, I focus on the way that materials and the performative interaction with them can generate meaning.”
