About Petra Ludvigson:

Petra Ludvigson is an abstract expressionist painter with a background in conceptual art. Starting her training at ASA in 1996 and graduating with a BVA from AUT in 2006, she has enjoyed a 20 yr+ relationship with the Auckland art world.

Utilizing line and texture, her work explores the female form as an abject location. Desire, objectification, expectation, possession, reproduction, power and control…. the female body becomes occupied and the self is leaked out.

Alongside her own art practice and teaching adult education, Petra runs art therapy groups for people living with dementia and adults with special needs.
