Marie Storaas (1981) works with visual art through an amalgamation of painting and sculpture. By blending different materials like concrete and plaster with pigments and oil, she creates a sensory expression. She often makes use of old photographs as a base, from which she creates abstract reflections. Storaas’ works have been exhibited nationally at various gallery spaces, such as Astrup Fearnley Museum Oslo, and Fredrikstad Kunsthall, and her record also lists a number of public art commissions, for instance for Bergen Prison and Bergen Litteraturhus. Upcoming exhibitions include a solo show, as the appointed Vossa Jazz 2018 festival artist, at Voss Kulturhus, commissioned by Vossa Jazz in collaboration with Voss Kunstlag. Upcoming exhibitions also include LCA Malaga Gallery in Spain.
