Frida Damhus In The Studio

"My studio is wherever my materials are. I've created pieces in many different countries and locations - I don't maintain a full studio as I've been living nomadically for the past 1,5 years (pre-COVID19). My studio 'feeling' however, is typically at home - wherever home is at that time. My ambition is to have a studio space once the world is safer to be out and about in."

More About Frida Damhus

IconInspires

What inspires you?

At the moment I am inspired by the visual similarities between human biology and nature's elements. Canyons and veins, organs and boulders, flora and cells. It might be naïve, but I find great poetry in what seems to be a shared design between us and our environment.

IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

I'm afraid there are few refined traits to my process. To me, art is meditative - and as such, I assert minimum control over the process. I follow no stringent rules or steps - no fancy preparations. I sit with the canvas and I begin - and I continue as long as it feels right. This means that some of my pieces take just a couple of days to complete, others way longer. My ambition is to create in a state of flow. I guess that's as process-y as I get.

IconMagnifying

What are 3 words that best describe your work?

Abstract. Colourful. Open.

IconUser

Who are some artists that have influenced your work?

In terms of the actual art, Yago Hortal mostly. But I'm also very inspired by not only the talent but also the entire approach to online artist entrepreneurship that CJ Hendry has.

IconTool

What is the most important tool when creating your work?

Uninterrupted time. A calm environment to sit in. And a great chair.

IconGive

What is the best piece of advice you have been given?

To never try. Or, putting it differently: To never force your art or creative expression towards a particular goal. It's easy to get caught up in the likes of "What will sell?", "What will look good on insta?", "What are the trends?". But I found it to be very true that every time I try to steer my work towards any such notion, it stifles it.

IconLightbulb

Where do you go for inspiration?

Primarily inward. Nine out of ten times, I don't know what I'm going to be creating before the pen touches the paper. And even then, I'm not sure where it'll go from there exactly. In that way, I don't pursue inspiration actively before starting up a piece. But I'd say I get it from many common-places: Nature, bodies, other people's art, space.
