Brita Granström

'In a narrative sequence that opens with playful domestic studies and bedroom interiors she leads us at dusk, by way of farmyard and orchard, to a lake where women struggle with storm-blown washing, and a dark jetty awaits the night swimmer. Brita Granström draws upon her Swedish roots to blur the boundary between observation and imagination, reality and dream.'
Mara-Helen Wood. Director, University Gallery, Newcastle upon Tyne.
