About / CV

If one called painting by its name, Malin Gabriella Nordin would probably have it
respond with the voice of rocks: of stones that fluently speak their own language
of shapes and ciphers and glow with multiple colours in the dark. Nordin gives
abstract forms a unique presence that is subtly spooky, animated by the silent
laughter of beings from other dimensions. – Jan Verwoert, 2013

Malin Gabriella Nordin (b. 1988) from Stockholm, Sweden
