Fjord draws inspiration from second hand memories, places which exist in the world and in other people’s experiences but which she has never directly encountered. In doing so, the artist creates an element of angst, nostalgia and longing for a place outside of her perception, and exploits the “unknown” and “foreign” as an idea which is unique to every single person.

Pyrography is the technique of burning directly into wood with a hand-held tool. Favouring the tactility and raw materiality of wood, the artist employs pyrography and oil with a focus on intentional mark making. The physicality of the techniques used is an attempt to exert ownership over the elusiveness of memory, time and place - inherently flawed, disjointed and the subject of idealistic escapism.
