I am an norwegian artist. I was educated as a graphic designer and started the a design-company as I ran for 23 years. I sold the agency in 2012 and now has a studio in Bærum, near Oslo, and works full time as an artist.
There is something magical about capturing people at the moment. Something that should have been temporarily frozen in time and becomes permanent, an echo of the moment. My new project of paintings is about going back in time. I've always wanted to experience being a day in the past, 100 – 200 years back in time. Since time machine is not invented yet, I put the people of today into a photograph taken long ago. These people were once frozen in time with a camera. There is something nostalgic and wistful by studying these images that tell a story about how life was for them.
