The Forest Mouse

And now my watch is ended…

…at Einar Granum School of Art. Thanks to all the wonderful students and teachers for two great years! When autumn comes I’ll take my stuff and move to Bergen. It’s time for a new chapter  of my life: Bergen Academy of Art and Design.

My semester assignment. Finished today!

Montage with 10 pictures plus threedimentional objects illustrating different facts about the mushroom, and conveyed through the genre of fairy tales/myth/storytelling. Illustrations for children. My main goal was to experiment with different techniques and materials, looking for a visual style I like and may continue to develop.

Interested in taking a closer look? Einar Granum is open for outsiders tomorrow between 16-18.

Little Red Cap

Papirtre framside Papirtre bakside  Papirtre kollasj

This is the installation I made for the summer exhibit 2013 at Einar Granum. It mainly consists of motifs cut out in paper, which are illustrations of Little Red Cap by the Brothers Grimm. The paper (the story) grows out of the book and up the glass wall, creating a small fantasy world.

This was my second time working with paper cutting, and it’s something I would like to do more. And of course it was good motivation getting a student award for my work! 🙂

I was inspired to try out paper cutting art because I discovered the Danish artist, Karen Bit Vejle, by coincidence. She has amazing paper cut art!  http://papercutart.no/
