Sigrid Holmwood (November 19, 1978) is a British/Swedish artist and works in London.

Life[edit | edit source]

Holmwood was born in 1978 in Hobart, Australia.[1] She was educated at The Ruskin School of Fine Art and Drawing, University of Oxford (BFA, 2000) and the Royal College of Art, London (MA in Painting, 2002).[2]

Work[edit | edit source]

Her paintings are historical re-enactments of the work of a painter of peasant life, referencing sixteenth century genre-painting and nineteenth century impressionism.[3][4][5] She sometimes performs in costume while she paints, dressed in clothing accurate to the 17th C subject of her paintings.[6][7] In line with her interest in historical accuracy and reenacting old techniques as part of her contemporary practice, she makes her own handmade paints according to historic recipes.[7][8] Holmwood is known to use traditional materials and techniques in a playful manner, for instance combining fluorescent pigments with egg tempera.[9][10]
