Kleiva, Iselin

Drawing

I work primarily with drawing. My artistic practice include small and large-scale, detailed drawings, but also photos, video and collage. The works explore the thin border between the human body and its external world. Themes connect to human body, technology and nature. Some of my latest series of photos and drawings relates to a geographical area that in near future will be destroyed by a natural disaster. And now also a new series of colored pencil drawings with motives connected to the viewpoint of next of kin of someone with critical illness.
