OSLO, NORWAY – August 30, 2015 - / Artist Henriette Roka-Aardal will be showing shows a dozen of her paintings at Galleri Pingvin in Oslo, Norway. She was selected as one of 12 emerging artists in 2015 which will set out in the same gallery as Ekatherina S., M. M. Malvin and Silvia Papas.
Roka-Aardal draws inspiration from different things she sees or hears in everyday life. A play of colors on an old brick wall, texture of fish scales, a song on the radio, or an experience on a trip abroad.
A sketch can either turn into a painting right away or remain for several years before it can be picked up again and realized on a canvas. She paints with few earthy tones and blends into inks and chlorine. This creates exciting color combinations and effects in her paintings. At this point and until now she has, with her background and the techniques she uses, developed her skills and style which can be characterized as expressionist and figurative.
The opening will take place at the Galleri Pingvin on September 12, 2015 from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM. The Exhibition will take place on September 9th through the September 26, 2015. 26/9 Galleri Pingvin – Oslo. Opening hours: Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Thursday, 11 AM to 8:00 PM, Saturday 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM and admission is free.
