Monica Hansebakken

Monica Hansebakken, born 1974 in Etnedal/Norway, completed her study at the Slade School inLondon (England) as a student of Professor Edward Allington.
The Slade School of Fine Art has been one of the most important English Art Schools since the endof the 19 century.

In the work of Monica Hansebakken, painting is combined with sculptural elements inspired by traditional Acanthus carving. The artist is interested in the formation of landscapes through people and their presence. In the outcomes of civilisation’s attempts to control and dominate Nature, Monica Hansebakken recognises aesthetic qualities. In the clarity of forms and lines from Renaissance Art, is mirrored the intensive experience of nature from her childhood. So the artist references works from Canova, Thorwaldsen, Leonardo da Vinciand others, and integrates specific elements into her fantastic, collage-like works. Through a systematic analysis of archetypes and observation of Nature the artist developed
an increasing abstract language of form, which is used to address fundamental structural and aesthetic issues as central themes.
