About the exhibition
Solo exhibition / Artist from Norway
October 5 - 28, 2001
The pictures are not specific landscapes; says Marit, they are more indications of it. And the audience is invited to look at the perspectives that are being indicated. they can use their own imagination to create their personal relations with the picture.
"I find room and movements interesting. I try to get different layers, and different perspectives to work together, but also interact with each other. I combine many different techniques in the hole printing process, painting on Plexiglass, drawing, cutting and adding objects in the press. The materials I use are the various objects and forms that I find lying around." —Marit Skjermo
