Birte Hella
Artist Statement


In the ‘Nowness' of fleeting moments, made tangible in The Landscape of Life, I make marks - gesture, form, symbol, myth and ritual - visual metaphors of experiential divides.

Works are notations, personal totems within primal patterns, acknowledgement of transience, and affirmations of continuance in the Marking of Time.

"From my rotting body, flowers shall grow and I am in them and that is eternity."

Edvard Munch (1863 - 1944)
