Collection: Marit Geraldine Bostad

Marit Geraldine Bostad (1976) is an abstract colourist who works and lives in Horten Vestfold County, Norway. She investigates themes such as the inner psyche, memories and human interaction through her series of paintings. She blends 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 explores the Nordic Colour tradition in a bold new direction, blending tone to tone pastels with sparks of fluorescent, manifesting her own personal psychic state onto the canvas. She builds up and breaks down the diverse elements of her experience and brings them together in a new plastic dimension. Through this, she expresses universal archetypes that transcend the particular conditions of her own life, setting the scene for the audience to bring their own meaning to her work.
