Artist Bob Landström primarily works with pigmented and crushed volcanic rock. By evoking the iconography of ancient languages, science, religions, and mysticism, his abstract paintings revisit our relationship with meaning through the highly granulated texture and colour combinations only possible with such a medium.
Landström’s latest series, Florum Somnia, exhibits at the Alan Avery Art Company until the 6th of August, 2023. In Florum Somnia, the Landström uncovers how plants possess an individuality rarely associated with them and transforms how they interact, whether through scent or mycorrhizal networks, into vivid, metaphysical wonderlands that elevate reverence for flora and its essential and creative role on the planet.
Here are some images from the series.
