Textile Collage

Historically speaking, I am fascinated by female artists and feminism in art. The way into my pieces has a reference to, and has as its point of departure, my inheritance in textiles, experience, education and a long life as a textile artist. The projects often combines my engagement both as a textile artist and as an art historian.

Planned projects and exhibitions

The theme for the last exhibition project is studies of Eva Hesse’s drawings. A kind of appropriation of Hesse’s work, executed in a textile material. In this transformation there lies a tribute – homage – to a female artist who represented a new trend of personal visions and who paved the way for other female artists.
The solo exhibition Time – Thought – Space was showed this fall at Risør Kunstpark, Risør
