Nadine Lundahl

Nadine Lundahl was born in Antwerp, Belgium in 1958, where she studied at the Royal Academy of Arts. As a student, Lundahl trained in the art of still life painting while studying the techniques of the 17th century Flemish and Dutch artists who first established this genre the area is known for.

From an early age, Nadine was exposed to painting and rare object d’arts, owing to her father’s profession as an antiques dealer and her lineage as a descendant of the well-known Finnish artist Amelie Lundahl.

Working in a relatively small scale, Lundahl develops her subject matter using traditional oil painting techniques, working on specially prepared panels. She is careful to select objects that relate together in form, texture and colour to display a sensual arrangement of contrasting surfaces. Lundahl's compositions reflect a stillness that is juxtaposed to the momentum of modern life.

The artist lives and works in Antwerp, Belgium and has exhibited in England, Finland, Portugal, Norway and now in Canada.

What magic ingredient makes the simplest painting acquire the stature of an icon? What is it that gives an archetypal potency to a painted bottle or jug? Some artists have the ability to invest ordinary subjects with extraordinary meaning – and one is Nadine Lundahl.

Educated at the Royal Academy of Arts in Antwerp, Nadine concentrated more fully on her preferred subject matter by studying the techniques of the 17th century Flemish and Dutch still life painters. Developing her subjects on a relatively small scale, she uses traditional oil painting techniques, working wet in wet on specially prepared panels. Each painting is so complex that it is impossible for her to work on more than one at a time.

Lundahl is a prize-winning painter who has exhibited widely in continental Europe. She has had 3 near sell-out solo shows with Messum’s in 2001, 2003 and 2005. (
