Here’s a few pics from the solo exhibition in Bergen “Rivjern/Grater”. The central theme/leitmotive for the show was gender roles. These paintings playing on the icon – idol – ideology chain of interpretation. And as the orthodox icons they’re painted om wood panels.
It’s been a while since my last post here. Time to move out some of the backlog. Starting with the most resent. A few pics from my solo exhibition i Switzerland at Stadtgallerie Chur. The exhibition was curated by Andreas Hoffmann and I owe him and not least Flavia Devon’s Hoffmann a great thanks for their support and a super nice and well organised event. And though the images were sketched out in advance, all the plates were painted in the gallery. Wall paint by sponge on MDF. A truly nice and sensual experience, throwing a great deal of energy into the paintings.
Rivjern (grater) is a visually appealing object. In Norwegian it is also jargon for bossy women. And it’s the title for my new solo exhibition coming up at Gategalleriet March 23.

Back on an old wall – between the buffed and the salvaged. The flowers to the right are leftovers from 2011. If you look closely you’ll see that when the wall was painted they deliberately painted around the flowers. A nice gesture. Most often the outcome is like the blot on the left….
New piece in Reykjavik. Love the colour on the building! A very windy day made the painting a real challenge.
