Exhibition Norway Sept. 2014
Another duo exhibition In Norway, Årnes, with Norwegian painter friend, Marit Stang.
Once more her large canvases were paired with my own small bracelets. The combination works, in its own peculiar way. Show title: The place, the tree, the flower. Impressions and memories.
Both focused on nature. Marit's paintings had trees as the mains source of inspiration, while mine was found in flowers. Or rather, memories of places related to flowers and the changing seasons.
The work titel for my bracelets was (badly translated): Armready flower memories.
Presenting five collections based on five colour moods. 1) Hepatica in earliest spring, before the onset of green. 2) Still spring, but now fragrantly green, forest violets in mossy woods. 3) Then, full summer with happy meadows in colourful bloom. 4) A burst of warm red and purples take over wood and marsh. 5) Occasionally, frost surprises some lingering stubborn growth and sugar-coats the garden.
