Artist from Norway (NO)

Lives and works in Oslo

My artistic work is based on drawing, a border zone between abstraction and figuration, where I seek to transform the two-dimensional surface and materiality of drawing into three-dimensional sculptural forms to create interdisciplinary aesthetics. I prefer working with large format pieces, with projects produced as series with a common main theme. I am not interested in tight frameworks, but rather in letting the projects communicate and transform along the way. I explore social community, family structures, relationships and other interactions where unity is essential. Themes I am interested in are the human façade, such as the hidden versus the perceived, psychological patterns, social constructions and feminism. I hold a BA in Aesthetics, MA in Art History from the University of Oslo, and a BA in Medium- and Material-based art from the Oslo National Academy of the Arts in Oslo. I will begin a MFA at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts in Oslo in autumn 2023.
