In the exhibition “Dear Anna”, Cecilia Ömalm has experimented with cyanotyping and with the help of bleaching and plant dyeing has produced a muted, earthy color scale with tones of umber and ochre. The exhibition partly consists of pictures that clearly show which objects were used, in the spirit of the 19th-century botanist and pioneer Anna Atkins. But on display is also a series of more abstract images where the viewer cannot immediately understand what he or she is seeing; a play with positives and negatives, image and imprint.

In her work, Cecilia Ömalm often uses a room, place or a state of being as a starting point. She is perhaps best known for her digital collages–often huge, detailed images in black and white where viewers are invited to peek into mysterious, ominous places. Ömalm bases her work on archive material from all of world history and fuses it to create these symbol-ridden places. In addition, she works with sculpture and photography, always with the investigation of places and rooms as a starting point.
Cecilia Ömalm trained to be a photographer at the International Center for Photography in New York in the late 90s. Since the mid-2000s, she has had a successful career on the Swedish art scene, with a large number of exhibitions and works to be found in the Modern museet collection, among others.
