By using repetitions, different directions in brush strokes as well as different depth effects, Aaslund creates abstract landscapes that alternate between something recognisable and at the same time completely unknown.
Always working from memory, he combines what he has seen with subjective experiences and moods, approaching different landscapes in an abstract language, with layer upon layer of colour, some transparent, others opaque, forming the substance of the paintings.
Based in rural Norway, Bjørnar Aaslund is a member of the NBK (Norwegian Visual Artists Association) and has exhibited extensively in Scandinavia.
