Descrizione Opera / Biografia
Painter & physical therapist - Aase Birkhaug
Believing that surroundings can influence one` s health and mind, Painter and Physiotherapist Aase Birkhaug has combined her two passions by painting roses for a soothing effect on humans.
I am compared to the famous Mexican artist Frida Kahlo who said “I paint flowers so that they shall not die “ and I say” I paint Roses so that I shall not die”. Impact on humans from nature, flora, botanics and for me the most beautiful flower The Rose.
We often search for answers to our questions and believe the complicated answer to be the solution to the complicated question. It is not always like that, if we use the words of the English Association of Healers : Healing is gentle, simple and effective.
Having fallen in love with flowers, nature and painting from early age, it was only natural to merge these factors together at some point, and by combining the aesthetic beauty of botany with her skills as a painter.
It is documented that colors have an effect on the sensory system, and some years ago I made the waiting room in my physiotherapy office into an exhibition for my paintings, so I discovered that it influenced the patients mental state.
My paintings are regularly described as very soft and mild. The color combinations I use are tastefully and delicately fused to make a motif that can be described as very soothing to the eye.
I discovered several years ago that Roses have a positive effect on me, almost like healing, and the combination of the smell and the sight feels like a meditation, bringing about a certain calmness, this is something I try to reflect in my paintings.
I do my paintings in different media – Aquarelle – Tempera – Gouache – Oil – Acrylics and Pastel.
I have been drawing and painting since I was 6 years old.
I have had exhibitions both in Norway and several country s abroad during the years 1990 – 2019. Approximately 70 - 80 international art exhibitions in 2016 - 2019.
