Biography for Marit Søndersrød


 I have my studio at Fornebu Cultur Center , the old airport of Oslo. 

I am av visual artist working with paiinting and textile.

Amongst other, I have a Master of Art Degree from Oslo University College of Applied Science, with in depth study in female self portraits, based on paintings. Many years as a teacher at different higher levels have given me essential knowledge within various forms of art – being of great value for me to-day as an artist.
I have also many years of experience as a designer and have created designs for interior textiles. I use this experience – more or less consciously – in the build-up of rhythm and repetitions in my paintings.

What fascinates me thematically, are the Norwegian nature, its seasonal changes, and variety in landscapes together with people’s relation to nature and to each other.

The last two years my focus have been on enviromental issues, especially the negative effects on nature. Within this I have explored a non-woven polyester fiber. Mye first project was Play of the Unseens in Telemark Art-center spring 2019. In those days I am working for exibitions in Norsk Skogmuseum january 2021 and Larvik Art-center september same year.
