SIRI GINDESGAARD | NORWAY
My paintings are about mood and emotions. Its memories from the past just left behind, current feelings, or daily conditions that characterize my imagery. It’s girls of all ages, with differens minds, that tell their stories.
The paintings are often marked by a certain melancholy/vulnerability that resides in myself. In the creation process occurs a dialogue where the expression of my gure answers me in some kind of poetic recognition, strength and intimacy. Elements we all possess. The bright and dark sides of art.
Art must move and astonish the viewer.
In my creative process a few elements are mandatory
• Resistance, compromise and an unlimited dialogue, before cohesion occurs.
• My courage to change course and on the most professional manner dare to leave some questions unanswered in the finished work.
• My work of art should not be ordinary and awless. When something seems to be too unproblematic, my experience tells me, that problems will show up, later in the process, where I will get a hard time passing them.
A good story is told, when I take a step into an unfamiliar direction and thereby move the target.
