Descrizione Opera / Biografia
I am an artist working mainly on paper. I express myself both in watercolor and by other techniques on paper.
In this work I was looking to find new ways to express color relationships and how colors relate, flow and move by the means of Johannes Ittens theory of color contrasts. I had an assistant who helped me fold part of the 400 origami-pieces, and to mount the 400 pieces took us 5 hours.
I graduated from art school in 2001, and studied then art history for a year (2002), and after that teaching art (2006).
My background: Partly I grew up in Norway, am married and based here, but my background is american/irish and swedish (parents/ancestors), And my artistisc influences are from mixes of cultures.
