I am an artist from Norway, that try and create beautiful surreal paintings that evoke a delicate sadness
Through the juzatopositon of humans and nature in dreamlike landscapes, my artwork
is exploring many themes dealing with the destructive nature of humans.
“Again and again, we make bad choices with horrendous consequences for this beautiful planet and this
saddens me more than I can say. There is a lot of this in my work.
Norway is one of the lucky countries where the destruction is not very visible yet.
The nature is still incredibly beautiful and mighty impressive.
This inspires me immensely and plays a huge part in my work.
The actual look of my work has a lot to do with my background as an illustrator. Since the subject matter
that I want to explore and communicate is so dark and melancholic, I like to juxtapose this with a beautiful
fairytale-like look to the image. I want to “draw” the onlooker in and then let them discover that everything
is not as it should be in this “beautiful” place. I love the uneasy pairing of innocence/cute and ominousness
