Paintings by San Francisco-born, Oakland-based artist Lena Gustafson. Gustafson graduated from the Art Institute of Boston with a BA in Illustration and Art Therapy in 2011. She founded Night Diver Press together with her partner Peter Calderwood, utilizing silkscreen and other alternative printing techniques to create prints, books, zines, and monotypes. Informed by her experience preparing images for screen-prints, Gustafson’s paintings depict scenes of transformation often with figures or plants merging with their environment. Recurring themes in her work include body memory, repression, sequential evolution, and reciprocity. Check out more images below!
