Painting Graphics Photo
Anne-Britt Kristiansen has an Education in Fine Art from DTK (Det Tverrfaglige Kunsinstitutt) in Norway. She is a full time freelance artist living in Oslo. She works with paintings , photography and graphics
Her work is often inspired by photos she has taken herself or autobiographical material from her own family photo album. She is fascinated with the retrospective glance that reusing old photos provides. By taking inspiration from her photos and using that for her paintings, (a type of re-use of old photos) that picture has the opportunity to change from its original form while simultaneously pointing back to its origin. The finished painting can bring about traces of recognition of a scene from the viewer’s own family album or memories. She seeks to evoke an empathy the viewer can mirror themselves.
Anne-Britt’s art has a collage of impulses from the fantasy world of the subconscious mind. She is preoccupied by the border between dream and reality, specifically the art of relinquishing control of one’s rationality and giving up to the free flow of impulses from the subconscious.
The common denominator of her art is that she tries to show parts or fragments of something allowing the viewer to put his or her own story in the painting. She suggests scenes we can recall having seen or experienced, moments that disappeared and unclear memories. By using disaggregated blurred lines, reshuffling sequences and switching between external and internal barriers she finds a tension between the abstract and figurative.
Her paintings are built up of several layers of acrylic paint. Layers that hide other layers. Things are often painted over, removed or corrected. She uses colors to reinforce the expression and materials such as plaster, coal, silk paper, and fabrics to achieve special textures.
