“Ida Thunström’s art is at constant battle with itself. It gets torn apart and rebuilt in a constant quest whose only objective is growth. The alchemical, hermetical aspect of her pictorial language therefore becomes essential. This alchemical/ hermetical journey to existence is a form of ‘Peregrinatio’, the kind of transformation that characterise the theme in much of what she creates. It is a journey without end. Every exhibition closes with the artist entering a new creative narrative.” Guido Zeccola 2015, writer and journalist
