Recently, Swedish artist Sara-Vide Ericson got the words “Hunter Gatherer Painter” tattooed on her upper arm. The words conjure an image of the artist existing within and among natural elements and phenomena. Fitting for Ericson as she returned to the countryside near where she grew up to live out her artistic practice. Through both landscape and figure painting, she explores these notions of wild, unchecked nature and human sensibility, and the fluctuating relationship between these elements. Sara-Vide Ericson’s work I Wanna Be Your Dog (2017) features the cover of the newest issue of Mayday Magazine, lending a visceral representation of the human-nature relationship, launching this Friday, November 1.
