Sigrid Holmwood’s unique approach to painting is most vivid in its use of colour. Neon tones garishly clash with her subject matter of historical reenactments of vanished traditional life, and museum workers in Skansen Museum on the island Djurgården in Stockholm who dress in traditional garb to better illustrate life in the historic buildings that populate the island and make up the museum.
