Kunst av Kristin Vestgård


I go searching with my oil paints, entering an unknowingness searching intuitively for what is meant to happen on the canvas.

I draw inspiration from processing everything that comes my way, the people, atmospheres, nature and emotions. I keep looking for poetry with a nerve or an essence that brings meaning when working. I always try and pervey a sense of hope, maybe just for myself, an understanding or empathy that only whispers between between what is light and dark in life.

In my work I can create my own paths. Sometimes it is as if I try opening a door to an otherness or otherworldlyness where there is a place for me a place where I can belong, a hopefull and more gentle place to be
....think I sort of protest quietly against the harshness of this world!
