Astri Styrkestad Haukaas
Lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark
Abstract painter and founder of Danish artspace KVIT, Astri Styrkestad Haukaas's expressive paintings draw their colors and tones from nature. For each series, Haukaas paints her subjective experience of the natural world -- often painting the same space multiple times as she remembers it through different, changing moments. Haukaas' work has been featured in Artforum.
“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.”
