    About The Work

    Ida Ekblad’s work, Picture Phosphorescence, the Pure, Again, combines two of her most recognizable motifs, aliens and gateways, as well as the puff paste also frequently found in her paintings. Utilizing the inherent block-building process of screen printing, Ekblad has created a print of competing colors and surfaces. Using a special additive, the final screened layer of white ink used for the graffiti figures and tag-like calligraphy is passed under a special heater, causing the ink to rise. Though hesitant to label her work as distinctly Norwegian, Ekblad is inevitably influenced by the landscape and especially the water in one way at least. “I love blues,” says the artist, “it’s almost a joke in Norway. Some art students went to the art supply shop, and there was no more blue. They were like, ‘Why does Ida buy all the blue paint?”
