Berge, Mari Krokann
Drawing, art graphic artist
I work with drawing, woodcut and collage.
Always in black and white, with all the shades between.
Collage is layer upon layer of paper.
I draw with pencil, chalk and ink.
The possibilities and restriction og wood fascinate and inspire. Wood is a living material and you have to respect the direction of the grain and the hardness of the material.
Nature is always my inspiration. The cold winter landscape or the hot african savannah.
