Diva Spirit

Marit Geraldine Bostad, 2018     

Acrylic on canvas framed

Size: W65 x H85cm

Marit explores the themes that are central to her artistic endeavours, 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 paint brush - to create diverse, versatile effects, resulting in broad expressive strokes whose vibrant color emanates from the surface. As she moves the paint around the canvas, consistent colour blends start to form. These blended gestures become auras that grow and merge with pure colour. Marit explores the Nordic Colour tradition in a bold new direction, blending tone to tone pastels with sparks of fluorescent and manifesting her own personal psychic state onto the canvas. She builds up and breaks down the diverse elements of her personal experience and brings them together in a new artistic dimension.

Artist Marit BostadArtist: Marit Geraldine Bostad

Marit works and lives in Horten Vestfold County, Norway where her studio is situated in a disused naval base, surrounded by the natural world and historic buildings that provide tranquility for her work.

Marit was an Art Director for 10 years working on visual projects in film, illustration and concept building in Oslo. Alongside her a commercial work, she painted as a way to release and unwind. In 2010 she left her career in Art Direction to pursue painting full time. Since then, she has exhibited her work in Oslo, London, LA and New York, and has received substantial acclaim from curators as well as galleries throughout Europe and the US, for her vibrant, strong and emotionally-charged contemporary abstract paintings. In 2017 Rebecca Wilson of Saatchi Art picked Marit as one of the "4 Must-See Artists". She made her debut in the New York art scene with a group show at Madelyn Jordon Fine Art and a solo show at Spotte Art in 2017 and the next year participated in "En Verano" in Los Angeles in Saatchi Art's physical summer show. Marit also spent five weeks in New York at ESKFF/MANA Contemporary as artist in resident at their Summer 2018 Program. She is currently working on her biggest solo exhibition to date at the acclaimed KHÅK Kunsthall Ålesund, Norway opening in November 2019.
