Norwegian artists

Her work is about how she views life, all aspects of it are from her point of view. She gathers all the impressions from her surroundings, experiences, beliefs, and relations, they are in a conversation with memories and expressions that she has. She wants to find some sort of meaning of events and time and create a sense of chance.

She believes everything and everyone is connected in one way or another, we are a result of someone or something else that is happening or has happened. It is in these thoughts that she paints. The colors, the strokes and the movements are in a constant flow and in a conversation in the making, influenced by the state of the world, the seasons changing and the time moving. 

She takes it all with her into the works she makes. It is the vibrancy of all the notions that she embodies that she hopes she is able to offer a fragment of to the viewer.

She is Sami and her upbringing in the Sami culture has taught her how to value nature, subconsciousness and the world's spirituality. The way life was handled, and the impressions of everyday life are well within her. Her works often starts with visual impressions that she has photographed, these images are for her self to remember what she was watching that made her think of something she wants to keep in mind. Whether it be a feeling, an event, composition, color or light. She stores it in a cloud and take it out to look at when she starts a project. When she works, she is in her own thoughts, this becomes a text, painting, or sculpture. She has often made up an understanding of the expression she wishes to get out, or at least a desire for what she wants to achieve. Along the way this often changes, maybe it does not go along with what she had planned, and she has to make changes to her expressions. She then uses some time to get used to the new creation that emerges during the hours she is working on the piece for the end result to make sense.

Lately, Berit Louise has been working on unprepared canvases. This is because she realized that she has less control over the paint, it flows and spreads as it pleases, it becomes a battle for space and she finds the process intriguing. She also use text along the way, these writings are emotions that arises as words. Her writing is a part of her work and she alternates between how she uses it, sometimes she writes it directly on the canvas or and other times she uses it for titles. She feels like she is a part of a conversation and that she has a lot of vibrancy to include the painting, so that it becomes an abundance of visual information.
