birth year


artist statement

something that could have grown somewhere or inside someone. inside out and outside in. the melancholy of natures color compositions and human intervention. astri styrkestad haukaas interpret the synergies between the abstract in nature and the irrational in humans. her subject matter is nature affected by subjective memories. it’s cause and effect and what happens the moment the paint meets the canvas and when two colors mix. through fleeting memories the works display her interpretation of moments where nature has had an extensive representation; an overly heavy sky; a water stream revealing it’s endless informations. the works are created through her filter as a collection of fragments processed and composed, finding its way into your stream of thoughts where it becomes another untrue and irrational story.
