Artist biography

Hege Liseth was born in 1969 in Fredrikstad, Norway. She works with painting, drawing, graphics and video. Her work is based on an abstract imagery, with roots in the traditions of minimalism and expressionism - characterized by an intuitive and spontaneous approach as well as meticulous adaptations and painting-technical systems.

“I explore ways to connect polarities to create a kind of dichotomy. The simple versus the complex. Silence and chaotic energy outburst. The volatile and the stable. The challenge is to be able to communicate in both places at the same time. A kind of potential condition that can go several possible paths of meaning.

I am preoccupied with complexity in relation to perception, what influences our interpretation of the world. Change, movement and change are a recurring theme. Both formally, but also how we as viewers can choose to look in different ways. How we interpret the environment and how it affects us mutually. ”
