FRiday 10th June 2022
This year’s summer exhibition is 2nd -10th July
I have invited the artist Tanja Silseth Vean here to my art studio (Dalalåven Atelier) during the local Cultural Week.
Tanja was born and raised in Sunndal, but she has lived in Trøndelag the past 20 years or so, so she is absolutely a local artist
Music, poetry and nature have always had a special place in her pictures, both as inspiration and starting point, but it is the four-legged creatures and those with wings that have had the greatest place in her art for the last 10 years.
The conversations between animals and humans, nature and city, have always fascinated Vean.
Female figures, often in conversation with the animals, have also been a recurring main theme. Sensuality, sexuality and everything around the feminine have a big place in what is created in the unity between women and friends.
Tanja says “It is interesting to see how the balance between wisdom often ends up in the animals’ favor”.
Oil paint, acrylic, watercolor, pastels and pencil. Everything is equally interesting and often mixed, as long as they work well together.
Tanja Vean plays with materials and forms of expression and uses mixing techniques to find the right expression.
Tanja and I have known each other for a little eternity, but this will be our first joint art exhibition.
Here you will find both drawings, painting and prints in all kinds of techniques, humor, a twinkle in the eye, strong emotions and delicate moments.
Tanja and I look forward to rolling out the red carpet and inviting you to our summer show!
Opening Saturday 2 July at 1 p.m.
Open every day from 11 am to 5 pm. With the exception of Saturday 9 July when it will be 10-16 due to the local market day.
