Berge, Mari Krokann

Drawing, Collage, woodprint

Collage is layer upon layer of paper.
I build up the pictures with remnants of graphic sheets,
and using the tones from the different papers.
I draw with pencil, chalk and ink.
Inspiration is from the landscape. Near the place I relate to.
Actually, it could be anywhere so long as it is winter with trees, water, ice, rivers and hills.
In order to recreate the temperature of winter; Frost, mist and snow.
Something familier, something felt.
I simplify and play with abstract form.
The eye reads a picture with horizontal and vertical lines, like a landscape.
