Through her abstract paintings in oil and soft pastel, fleeting textures appear reminiscent of landscape and dream material. Her multimedia works are placed in nature, using the material found to create site-specific art. Beatrice also create soundscapes, an important feature in her solo exhibition during Art Licks. Her continuous interest in nature and topographies has led her to take part in the Arts Territory exchange program. A program aimed at artists from different parts of the world to generate new ideas around personal territories. Beatrice was born in 1986 and is currently based in Oslo.

 

Artist Statement

 

My work is an interdisciplinary practice of drawing, painting, film, sound and sculpture. It has an organic character throughout it`s various expressions. Retracing primitive and ancestral thematics of nature with activities such as walk, dance, rhythm, dream, play and hand painting. The drawings and paintings contain dream material and I use colour pigment to portray an inner landscape of imagination. Im the co-founder of Inner Space, an independent press publishing small editions of art and poetry books. It`s also an alternative way to create a platform to present art work in book form. One of the published books is entitled Colour Story, a story about the origins of colour and how we interact with them based on Goethes colour theory. It was exhibited during an art book exhibition in Budapest at MAMU galleria and is now stocked in various book stores. I work with synthesizer and ableton to create soundscapes that invoke an atmospheric ambience and experimental quality. A soundtrack and film was created for my solo exhibition `Ritual Lines` during East London`s festival; Art Licks in 2015. Along with carved etchings on metal plates and organic sculptures. I also create site-specific installations of sculptural character in nature using the materials found available to shape new perspectives, forms and spatial relationships. An interweaving of ones inner life according to outer surroundings where imagination and intuition is brought forth. Textiles, thread, and other organic materials take part. Im currently participating in ArtsTerritory exchange an ongoing collaborative correspondence project based on nature art, territories and topographies. Exchanging ideas by post with the artist Kelly Leonard based in Australia. I theorize on an alternative organic thinking mode rooted in the four elements and have written a symposium called `Ecology as Art`available on my website.
