Biography

Marit Geraldine Bostad (1976, Norway) is an abstract expressionist painter. Her works represent inner journeys into her subconscious with the intention to erase the line between the conscious and subconscious. As a result, the canvas evolves into the tangible manifestation of her inner psyche. Memory and people are the themes from which she draws inspiration, and colours are the medium to transpose their essence on the canvas. Marit Geraldine pushes the Nordic colour tradition in a bold direction, blending tone to tone pastels with sparks of fluorescent. Through her paintings she expresses universal archetypes that transcend the particular conditions of her own life, setting the scene for the audience’s unique interpretations. Through a series of paintings on canvas, Marit Geraldine investigates the themes that are central to her artistic research, the inner psyche, memories and human interaction. She blends her colours by pouring paint directly onto the canvas using a variety of tools, seldom using the paintbrush - to create diverse, versatile effects with broad expressive strokes. Marit Geraldine lives and works in Horten, Norway.
