Berg Gravningen, Christian

Painter

I paint with acrylic and charcoal. I use photographs from knitting catalogues, weekly magazines, family photographs and snapshots I take with my mobile as a starting point for the paintings. Like the colour of a ski jacket from the 80’s or a sense of place from a 50’s holiday picture I want to interpret and work on. I’m working on life style magazine-escapism with different narratives that take place at the same time, snapshots from my own everyday life. I’m also interested in formal quaint issues like shape, colour and composition.
