Angles’ series 2022-23, oil painting
Liina Ranne is Estonian and has lived in Brussels for over 20 years. When I paint, I forget myself. I enter my paintings like open books, infinite modes in perspective. I seek harmony between colors. My brush guides me towards a particular light that of the North. In winter, in northern lands, light is rare and more precious than gold. Each stroke is a story, and I must use it soberly with respect for nature. In Estonia, nature is superior to man and his myths.

Sometimes my hand merges with the elements, and then I close my eyes and listen to the Arvo Pärt’s music, and miraculously light and angles appear, harmony is created in this natural symbiosis. natural symbiosis.
