Expo Ecofuturiste: Native Spirit - Elena Lindjo


In the beautifully produced catalogue that goes with this exhibition of 35 artists, this work is called 'Symphony of the Universe' but the sign in front of it says 'Native Spirit.' I didn't trim this photograph at all as the work seems to hang so beautifully amongst the lovely trees of the Casino Gardens.

Elena Lindjo is a Swedish-born artist who first came into contact with art and fashion at the age of 14, when she started modelling for Emilo Pucci in Italy during her vacation. She started acting in the theatre and was a finalist for the Miss Sweden contest. Combining modelling, acting, interior decoration and charity work for UNESCO, her life was between Paris, London, New York and Monte Carlo. Click on the link to see more of her work and read how she developed as an artist.

"Forever in motion, my paintings are expressions of energies existing in the Universe: a combination of rhythm and colour, emotion and shape, like music on canvas.'

'All things are connected in the endless symphony of the universe. Our beautiful planet is part of that harmony, so let's respect and preserve the essence of life that has created us.' - Elena Lindjo

Native Spirit seems to fit. I like it. I would hang it in a conifer. MB

It almost blends in with its surroundings. It reminds me a little bit of a dreamcatcher. The artist is quite accomplished and it is wonderful that she finds the time to do charity work for UNESCO.

I like the organic feel of this piece. The flowing ribbons under block look like twines hanging from the trees.

It's an interesting piece, Jilly. I looked at her website and she is indeed beautiful but I find her artwork rather naive. It is nice, but not spectacular. However, I think her heart is in the right place. Her poem was quite lovely ...
