Bjerneld works with the painting's ability to include different aspects of time, spatiality and representation. Her paintings are characterized by their art historical and personal references melting into painterly abstractions with distinctive compositions. 
Her practice shares no central formula, and instead functions as part of a whole that provides insight into her personal history and political ethos and interest in the possibility of painting as medium and in relation to the exhibition space.


Bjerneld received an MFA (2008) from the Royal Institute of Fine Arts in Stockholm. She is a Senior Lecturer at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm and represented in the collections of Modern Museum of Art in Stockholm and Malmö Konstmuseum. Recent exhibitions include Bonniers konsthall, Stockholm (SE) in 2020. Solo presentation at Konstakademien, Stockholm (SE). She is currently working on her research project The Institute of Reproducibility funded by RIA.
”Lina Bjernelds måleriska sökande för henne genom de personliga associationernas och berättelsernas landskap. Motiviskt rör hon sig mellan uttryckets ytterligheter, utan att förlora sitt konstnärliga fingeravtryck. De sällsamheter och poetiska frestelser som måleriet bjuder tar hon varsamt tillvara och placerar sedan de olika verken I kärv lust I en dialog som även innefattar rummet.”
