Lives and works in Zürich, Switzerland
Maja’s work is of a highly visceral nature, characterised by an open—ended process of experimentation and mistake. The pieces are continuous works in progress that consist of multiple layers of various media that create a living, three—dimensional, and almost sculptural surface. The process of creation is one tainted by a deep uncertainty. It is a celebration of the obscure, the unfamiliar, and the introspective, and a meditation on an absolute mistrust of the inevitable and the dogmatic — rejecting predetermined symbols in favour of the much richer subjective inner world of the spectators themselves.
Maja Malmcrona is a contemporary artist born 1993 in Göteborg, Sweden. After finishing a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Architecture from Umeå University, she moved to the United Kingdom where she earned a Master of Science degree in Philosophy at the University of Glasgow — completing a dissertation which explored art as the meaning—giving substance of our culture, akin to that of the religious experience. This brought her back to and cemented her strong passion for art, which she has relentlessly pursued since. Her work is held by collectors worldwide. She lives and works in Zürich, Switzerland.
