“Ida Thunström’s art is characterized by perceived nonsense, automatic script, quotes and codes. Sometimes seemingly closed and intrinsic, it opens up more and more for every minute you spend with each labyrinthine piece. Her artistic practice is an attempt to express a continuous now by recommencing in what is constantly ongoing. Her minimalistic technique and predilection for the grayscale is a conscious limitation, which is echoed in a monotonous, almost chanting vocabulary.” Guido Zeccola, writer and journalist
