Brita Granström

'Her urgent way of capturing life as it happens (and not as it is frozen) reinforces a sense of energetic vitality. Brita's is vernacular painting, wanton and unconstrained by the decorous habits of the life room.'
Mara-Helen Wood. Director, University Gallery and Baring Wing, Newcastle upon Tyne.

'My subjects are women who have allowed me to observe their private moments: undressing, washing and bathing. I wanted flesh and light,
I wanted to paint women who have looked life
in the eye...'

Brita Granström, in the exhibition catalogue for Undressed - Paintings from Life.
