Lysen, Janne Maria

mixed media

Janne-Maria Lysen (JML) holds a BA and an MA from the Kunsthøyskolen i Oslo, Kunstakademiet and the Royal Art
Academy of Stockholm.
J.M Lysen is creating questions by putting things in a notable and awkward order. Asking existential questions that appears during daily life. She is taking a humoristic look at human logic and behavior, but at the same time she is showing
her non satyrical form of criticism. With an interest in handcraft and mostly raw material, that she collects from nearby
surroundings, she is reusing them to create new works. Last but not least J.M Lysen’s work manifests that both written
and spoken language is a shapeable material.
