I thought I’d share the work of Astrid Trügg with you today.
Astrid is a painter originally from the Netherlands but now lives and works in Edinburgh, Scotland.
She used to focus her painting on architecture but developed a love of still life after discovering the work of Ben Nicholson.
The influence is clear to see with a love of scumbled surfaces and flattened planes of composition.
The same love of texture can be seen in her mixed media collage approach.
She often re-uses favourite objects and motifs in her work as they have a strong personal attachment for her.
I love the moody quality she creates with a dark background and hilighted areas on the objects.
And I like her muted colour palette with pops of turquoise, indigo and yellow.
Hope you enjoy it too. You can buy her work here.
