  • Eliasson draws inspiration from nature with elements such as light, water, fog and glaciers to create works that bring a greater sense of awareness in the way we engage with and interpret the environment. His watercolours are subtle illusions of space and light, created through the repeated application of thin, transparent washes onto a single sheet of paper. The effect of the artwork is intensified by this elusive dialogue between pigmented layers of paint and patches of empty space.
