Angelika Millmaker Summertime Showtime

As a Norwegian artist, Angelika Millmaker’s work is rooted in the colours and landscapes of Scandinavia and the influences of Nordic art. As she explains ‘In the high northern latitudes, the sun bathes the landscape with light, colouring the sky with luminous shades of dark purple, deep blue and subtle crimson. The Scandinavian landscape comes alive during the long summer days and light nights of the midnight sun, and then becomes majestically silent as the autumn colours fade into the white snowfalls of winter. This quality of light gives colours a brilliance that is rarely found in other regions. The difference between the cool, cold almost whitish blue winter landscape and the bright colours of summer is very inspiring to me, and many of my paintings are characterised by bold contrasts between colours, textures, shapes and light.’

‘Although my paintings are never a direct translation, it may be possible to trace the pure white light of a winter day or the vibrancy of a flower in a variety of unexpected ways. Departing from a single vision from nature, my paintings try to show her inner mechanisms and vitality not represented by appearance but by the emotions these visions create in the viewer.’
