Artist in Residence Janette Kerr

Janette Kerr’s paintings and drawings represent immediate responses to movement and rhythm within the landscape. 

Here in Skagaströnd they are about advancing snow and mist, wind, glancing sunlight, whiteness and shadows, land and mountains disappearing and reappearing  – elements that seem to be about something intangible. 

Visit Kerr’s website for more information or read her blog on her experience here in Skagaströnd and the far north.

ARTIST IN RESIDENCE – NATASHA VAN NETTEN

Natasha van Netten is a visual artist from Vancouver Island, Canada. Her studio practice revolves around whales and cetology (the study of whales, dolphins and porpoises). Museum displays, charts, graphs and scientific data all inform her work. While at the Nes Artist Residency she is creating experimental drawings using watercolour, ink, wind, weather and the ocean. These processes allow nature to manipulate and alter the work.

“I am interested in incorporating elements and fragments from specific locations into my drawings. In a way the drawing then becomes a record or a specimen of that place, adding another level of complexity. Working with nature has its challenges, difficulties and risks but the surprises can be very rewarding.”
