Astrid Dahl is primarily contemporary landscape artist but at times straddles the surreal or abstract genres. Her work delves into our connections of texture, heart-felt longings and emotive themes to the land. Astrid’s work is represented all over Australia. She has had numerous exhibitions and is part of many private and corporate collections worldwide.
Astrid uses colours of the earth together with sensual textures, to map the layering of the earth, in both ancient depths and modern growth. Her work is filled with poetry, myth and perspective dualities.
She explores the conceptual thought of mans yearning to be connected to nature and pays homage to its beauty, diversity and abundance.
She analyses the many moods and complex spiritual nuances of both land and sea, from the dry desert country of Australia, to the lush steamy forests and sea shores of the tropics.
