Hofset, Inga Sund


I work with painting in a close relation with drawing and text. I investigate the relationship between representation and experience; my work is based on Living life. Figuration, colours and words serves as hints about experiences the image could connect to; but in the process, the non-figurative, formal and painterly investigations takes over. Through this process I might find form to sensations which, by different reasons, are hidden or escapes the rational mind, or words. How can I give form to something which do not have a form itself? This is also a question of language and sign -making.
