In making this series, Grünstein considered the ideals of Romanticism as expressed in the paintings of William Turner and Caspar David Friedrich. She says: 'There is a woman in the pictures. Sometimes she is moving diagonally, at an angle to something beside the camera and the viewer. It is as though she is fleeing from something. But there is no physical threat in the picture. Rather, there is something that I experience as threatening in what is invisible. This is a reaction against the romantic idea, the perfect. What one seeks for but, at the same time, feels hemmed in by.' (Figure in Landscape, p.35)
Grünstein's works have been exhibited widely in Europe in numerous solo and group shows and are held in private and institutional collections, including Moderna Museet, Stockholm and Hasselblad Center, Gothenburg. She is also the recipient of a Hasselblad Center grant. Grünstein lives and works in Stockholm.
