Pernilla Iggstrom

Pernilla Iggstrom’s paintings are the result of a process of investigation into her personal cultural heritage – a journey which explores the effect on her own identity of being born into one culture, then subsequently being adopted into another very different one thousands of miles away.

Mainly using source materials derived from her personal archive of family albums and her own photos of the environment, she explores both actual and imagined places (through the nature/nurture concept) where the relationships between the past and the present, the interior and the exterior, and the physical and the psychological are key.
