Viveca Berg has, since her first art-class, lived with painting…This class in 1996 connected her to people with interest in painting and soon she was a part of a painting-community. Now she start-ed to experiment…In 2016 she took a year off from work, she got a mentor in painting and start-ed to explore a new technic – acrylic! From then and on she sticks to acrylic, still she tries new things all the time. Pandemic started, she couldn’t go to her shared studio, stuck back home she joined an ‘online-class’ with Creative Business Academy in Norway…She loved the technique, they use products made to create clay figures on the canvas to the first layer. On top she uses fluid acrylic, cold wax, sand etc. She lives in Stockholm, Sweden, have had 13 exhibitions with her painting group and two by herself.
“I work in an intuitive way, never have a plan when I start painting. The nature around me as well as music inspire. I do love to use my hands instead of brushes, the smooth feeling to move around the fluid colors is amazing. Mostly I handle 3-4 canvases at the same time, the base of structure takes time to dry and the creative person in me can’t wait – I move on to the next one of course…Layer on layer, time flies…when mixing the media, I use with colors I feel free and un-stoppable. A complete canvas makes me happy!”
