We are so excited to introduce our longtime friend, ambassador and artist Filippa Edghill. She is joining us here in Byron for the rest of our Australian summer to enjoy some surfing, fun and friendship whilst creating for Atmosea's first artist residency. If you have been following Atmosea since the beginning you will recognise some of her beautiful artworks on our Logo's, T-shirts and tote bag.
Filippa describes her art practice:
"I try to bring a sense of wonder into my own life trough my paintings. Art brings me to a place nestled between reality and dreams where I can let my imagination grow. In that place I feel meaningful, like the essence of being human is to be able to create."
Filippa's beautiful collection is now currently hanging at RVCA Byron Bay. The gallery is open to the public 9am-5.30pm Monday-Friday, Saturday 9am-5pm
Artist and soul surfer Filippa Edghill grew up in the open landscape of Sweden and Barbados. Today her home is in Biarritz. Not scared of experimenting, she uses paper cutting, block printing, marbling and textile painting. This time she painted the modern Venus on linen. Soft colors and earth tones fill the graphic fields from which the figures are composed.
The exhibition “löst folk” originates from an everyday Swedish expression meaning “loose folk”. An old phrase used to describe the loose citizens, the lost ones. Today common as a casual invitation. A way to summon funky souls and curious personalities to assemble for a gathering, where anyone under the sun is welcome.
Calling all löst folk, witches and wanderers, mothers and misfits, punks and peacemakers, gunslingers and grandmas. Join us for a celebration of modern worshippers and a toast to the sacred feminine.
“The feminine energy itself is undirected but immense, like the wind and deep currents of the ocean, ever changing, beautiful, destructive, and the source of life” -David Deida.
The exhibition has been extended and will stay up for till end of March.
