Astri Styrkestad Haukaas Painting

Abstract painter & founder of Danish artspace KVIT, Astri Styrkestad Haukaas's expressive paintings draw their colors and tones from nature. For each series, Styrkestad Haukaas paints her subjective experience of the natural world -- often painting the same space multiple times as she remembers it through different, changing moments.




“My subject matter is nature influenced by subjective memories. I love thinking about how humans make deep, personal relations with nature - places, mountains, lakes, on earth and in space.”
