Norwegian artist Bjørnar Aaslund to exhibit at The Other Art Fair, London

Acclaimed Norwegian artist Bjørnar Aaslund will be exhibiting for the first time in the UK as part of The Other Art Fair which takes place at London's Old truman Brewery from 14 to 17 March 2019.

Aaslund is an abstract painter who likes to define his work as memories of non-existent landscapes. Through the destruction of the subject where composition and perspective are broken down into rhythms, surfaces and brush strokes, he focuses on the intuitive reading of nature and his own surroundings.

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.
