Research into Linnea Strid.

This photographer is also a painter, her work oil painting work is that good I struggled to tell the difference between the painting and the photograph. I like her work with water, water can be used and manipulated in so many different ways. It creates a abstract look to the work, and again makes it clinical because of the things we associate water with.

I like how she looks at both paintings and photographs and can make them almost appear as one because of the skill she has. The use of tones she has used make the body stand out so much more and by surrounding them by water almost frames them. But also distorts the body.

I have enjoyed looking at her work as it shows how you can make paintings and photography go hand in hand. She has studied the way water moves around her subject and taken influence from her photographs and used it t create unique and abstract water-portraits.
