LINA PETERSON (Gothenburg, Sweden)

My work is practice based and consists of material explorations into wood, textiles, plastics and metal in a studio-based situation.  The materials and the processes connected to them, such as carving, punching and stitching is constantly influencing the work.  I am curious about the tactile qualities of materials and I love to juxtapose different material qualities and to explore colour in my work. The output is mainly exhibition based but in addition to making work for exhibitions and gallery contexts I also work on collaborative projects with fashion labels as well as on site -specific projects.

Born in Gothenburg, Sweden, I have spent the last eighteen years living in the UK. I graduated from the University of Brighton with a first-class degree in Three Dimensional Crafts and I also hold a master’s degree from the Royal College of Art in Goldsmithing, Silversmithing, Metalwork and Jewellery, where I studied between 2004-2006.

My work has been exhibited extensively internationally and I have held a number of residencies. Twice have my work been selected for the prestigious Schmuck exhibition that takes place annually in Munich. I have also exhibited at COLLECT.  Bio
