Interested in both high and low brow culture, Kindberg plays on the notion of the tragicomic in a society that is both civilized and ridiculous and she uses this humorous approach acting as a portal that enables us to explore other, more unsavoury emotions. Digging where she stands, it is often Kindberg’s nearby surroundings that take centre stage. Kindberg’s paintings stay predominantly figurative but where the figurative, which is the starting point, moves towards abstraction. Kindberg is particularly interested in the contrast between flatness verses the illusion of three-dimensionality. Different forms of language, such as, stylized form, photorealism, or mark making resolves the picture planes. Kindberg is looking for a composition which is often a two-sided double take.
Twin Peaks is based on three ideas morphed together into one interior. A telephone from a hotel in London, dead roses belonging to the landlady and a painting within the painting based on a series of drawings done during lockdown.
