The shapes I use in my artwork are inspired from my childhood exposure to Norwegian folk art, such as Rosemaling and Wood Carvings by my artist ancestors.
My artwork is a juxtaposition of tightly structured and loosely playful. I enjoy the journey from the right hemisphere of my brain to the left and back again, in the process producing an invitation for the viewer to engage with color, shape and the way they interact with each other.
This show is constructed mostly of work from my seminal Whirlism series that has inspired subsequent works in diverse media, including public sculpture, one of which is currently on display in Mercer Island’s Greta Hackett Outdoor Sculpture Gallery.
I am currently working on a mosaic series that will be exhibited exclusively at the Yuan Ru Gallery on March 8th, 2024
