Haugland, Elin Glærum

Painting - Experimental Film

Elin Glærum Haugland creates paintings and experimental video works of human prescence in nature.
The past three years she has traveled to islands in Polynesia and the Amazon jungle of Peru and Brazil to paint using natural color pigments. The paintings are designed to fit in her backpack and the colors are linked to the places she visits and the cultures she meets. She is learning about different ways of being in the world, and viewing life, from people living close to nature. She studies the use of natural color pigments in body painting, tattoo and decoration of everyday objects.
Using her sensitivity, Elin translates the impressions she receives into a painted language. For her, the painting is alive and through the encounter with other cultures, she is looking for soul and power to give to her paintings.
