More North opens an exhibition with Swedish watercolorist Karin Oldfelt Hjertonsson this weekend. The artist lives and works in Stockholm and New York. She studied oil painting in Brussels at the Academie des Beaux Arts and wood cut techniques in Chile. This latter field of study resulted in the artist illustrating Pablo Neruda's book Maremoto. In the 1990s Hjertonsson worked in Havana; here she worked with lithographs, woodcuts and silk-screens with a focus on various themes from Cuban nature and wildlife. During recent years in Finland, Sweden and New York she has dedicated herself exclusively to watercolor painting. These works tend towards the abstract; taking inspiration from nature in the form of clouds, flowers and landscapes.
