Von Lintel Gallery is excited to announce our inaugural solo exhibition with Lucia Engstrom. Her series Lovers & Dreamers is a study of ethereal landscapes that integrate hand embroidered details to push the traditional boundaries of photography. Her lifelong passion for storytelling is palpable in each frame through her skillful use of light, color, and texture.

The combination of her Scandinavian heritage, global travels, and an unyielding adoration for the environment instills a distinct narrative into Engstrom's work. Her compositions exceed representational photography, weaving a visual diary that tells of her exploration of artistic mediums and natural wonders. By delicately embroidering her photographs using organic threads like silk, mohair, and wool, Engstrom transforms these two-dimensional images into textured masterpieces.

Lovers & Dreamers is a collection of light-filled and poetic images, from messy, wild, and tangled florals to hazy and dreamlike treescapes. Nature is alive, existing and thriving beyond the frame of a photograph. The needlework adds layers of depth and emotion to each image, creating works of art that demand to be felt as well as seen. 

The woven component creates a trompe l’œil effect, giving the image a sculptural dimension. – Alexandra Bregman, The Art Newspaper

Lucia Engstrom’s work has been exhibited consistently since 2014. The artist lives and works in New York.
