Hanne Øverland

14 June - 31 July 2012

Hanne Øverland reflects around the colour green and how strongly this colour represent what we feal is natural and unnatural. The works span from picturesque wall hangings to a big floor textile that invites the visitors to sit down and enter the art work.

The colour green can represent both the beauty and the ugly. Sprouting grass is green, so is mould and decay, both the hale and poisonous in nature can be green. By working with the colour in homogenous, nearly monochrome colour surfaces, the artist leaves the colour open for the onlookers own reflections, thoughts and views.

Hanne Øverland (born 1958) lives and workes in Oslo. She studied at Oslo National Academy of the Arts in the textil department, with a diploma in 1987. She has had solo exhibitions at Kunstnerforbundet in 1998 and 2007, Gallery Format in Bergen and Vestfold Art center. Hanne Øverland has taken part in various group exhibition such as the annual autumn exhibition and annual crafts exhibition. Her work is in the collection of the 3 Norwegian museums of applied art in Oslo, Bergen and Trondheim, and she has made several public commisions.
