Maria Dubin in Karen Blixen’s garden
Danish artist Maria Dubin is a new member at Hollufgård, and now she has moved into the project workshop for a shorter period. The pictures she is working on are a culmination of a 3-year collaboration with the Karen Blixen Museum. Maria Dubin explores Karen Blixen’s garden, where she selects and transforms them into black and white drawings, which are published in books by the museum.
The stay at Hollufgård is a welcome opportunity to take the drawings in a new direction and unfold them in large, colorful collages, where she works freely and semi-abstract with watercolor and oil crayons. She shares the workshop with Japanese artist Ai Kumehara, who also works in large formats but a completely different tradition, and here are exciting opportunities to share experiences across cultures.
