This obsession isn't new, but it's new-found. After the death of Inger Sitter a fresh focus has turned to the talented Norwegian artist. Her art is full of contrasts, which is what I love so much about it. It's feminine, yet masculine. It's dark, yet wonderfully light and colourful. It's also poetic and deep, while remaining aesthetically pleasing.
My new favorites are her stone plates, which are paintings turned into plates of stone, sort of mosaics, with various types of beautiful stone. Never seen anything like it before, which is why I don't know a better word for it then 'stone plate', doesn't seem to cover it, but it'll have to do (unless someone can help me out?). It displays yet another contrast in her art; hard and soft. The soft curves, made up of such a hard material is fascinating and gorgeous. Has to be seen in real life, which you can now at Galleri Brandstrup in Oslo (Tjuvholmen).
PS: My iPhone pictures does NOT do these justice, go have a look your self, or visit the gallery websites for better photographs. Although sadly, they don't have the one I thought was the most impressive!
