I've been meaning to post about this wonderful print ever since I purchased it way back in April. It's by Lithuanian printmaker Gražvyda Andrijauskaitė and I can tell you it is even more beautiful in person. The print is only 10 x 10 cm but the detail is really incredible.
When I bought the print from Gražvyda online, she mentioned she was having an exhibition in Sweden in late April/early May. Now Sweden is not a small country, so it was a nice surprise to find out that the gallery (Galleri Tapper-Popermajer) was not too far from Malmö. Grant and I made vague plans to go see the exhibition.
Over the Easter weekend we were out in the countryside when Grant got a call from one of his best friends, Rikard. Rikard was at his cousin's art gallery, and was chatting away with the exhibiting artist who, when she found out he was from Malmö, asked if he knew an Australian called Samantha who also lived in Malmö.
Talk about a small world! We headed over to the beautiful old station house in Teckomatorp where Galleri Tapper-Popermajer is located, and not only did we get to see the exhibition, we also got to meet the lovely Gražvyda and her partner who were in Sweden for the weekend. I love it when unexpected things like that happen!
