The Sun Will Always Sing: Mälaröarnas and Central Sweden
Joy Lynn Davis’ new series of paintings illuminates the beauty and magic of the islands in the Lake Mälaren area of Central Sweden. The paintings combine layers of 23 karat gold or layers of silver leaf with acrylic paint on linen, and are from the artist’s own photographs taken in autumn and winter on Adelsö and surrounding islands. Because of the significant amount of gold and silver used, the colors and feeling of depth change as the light on the paintings changes. You can see this phenomenon clearly in the third and fourth slides.
Additional paintings in this series are currently in progress. These paintings will be for sale.
